Time is Age Dependant?

by Andrew the Muse » Mon Sep 07, 2015 6:47 pm

One of the consequences of Einstein's Theory of Relativity
is that time depends on the speed at which we travel.

I believe that he got it wrong!
I've found that time depends on age.

Think back to your childhood - it was ages between Birthdays, holidays, Christmas, etc.
A year was a very long time.

And now?
No sooner has one Christmas passed, before the next one is upon us.
Suddenly a year is a very short time.

Clearly the apparent passage of time is a function of our minds.
So that must mean that we CAN change it.

How?

We can slow down the clock by focusing on TODAY.

We need to focus on the NOW because the reality is
that is all that we have.
We need to live in the NOW and enjoy it fully
because none of us know how much time we have left.

Do you remember making a 'mental list' of all the things that you would do, see and achieve?
What happened?

Life got in the way and time caught up with us.
Hindsight is a wonderful thing.
But
the reality is that there is only NOW.

So don't pose 'if only' or 'what if' questions
Instead
draw up another 'bucket list'
and do it.
When we were young
50/60 was a lifetime away
but
now that we're there
we need to come to terms with our mortality.
particularly as time is accelerating.

How?
By focusing on TODAY.

What do YOU think?
I'd love to hear from YOU
and to get better acquainted.

What are YOU doing to slow down your clock?
Or perhaps you're not bothering?.

I'm looking forward to
hearing from YOU
very soon.

This reply was almost a case in point. My thoughts along the lines of "I'll do it later" but how often do we say that and never actually get around to doing it?
Whether it's replying to a comment or doing the Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb (yes that is on my bucket list), we procrastinate.

So I agree with you Andrew, we should make more of our time, live in the now whilst planning not to waste the future.

So now I'm going to go and write my Christmas list as it is September already and I swear it was February only last week ;)

Spot on, Andrew. In fact some sage or other (Chinese?) said words to the effect that, if we are fearful it is because we are living in the future and if we are sad, we are living in the past. We can only be happy and confident when we are living in the present.

I do find that it is important to fully live into the moment in order to be sustained through time and luxuriate in time. Like many, I realize that living in the present is where we dwell -- and I like to also have many present moments -- something about enriching with multiple perspectives. If it is something like a vacation -- the indulgence into painting can romance time -- but on the other had when I must attend to something online -- there is no extra time, it is just saving face with time. I appreciate time as I intend to live for a long time and I have much to bring into a soft focus in order to take it all in and love what is.

I'm reminded of:

If you're depressed, you're living in the past.

If you're anxious, you're living in the future.

If you are at peace, you're living in the present
