Do some people fill their time with as much action as possible
So as not to waste one moment?
While others do nothing -
so as not to waste one moment?
Do some ponder how to be in a constant state of presence
While others are in a constant state of future -
And is there a difference between those two?
(And do some people not ponder one or the other - and if so, what do they ponder?)
Future is just a lengthened presence, after all. There is no future, essentially.
(That seems so sad to me, but becomes more and more apparent to me as I grow up.)
I personally catch myself choreographing and narrating most moments of my bodily configuration in the world, as they happen.
But moments of happiness, for me, are those moments in which I simply AM without too strict or tense of a choreography and narration - a moment of "AHA, THIS IS A MOMENT OF HAPPINESS."
It happens often - Oh, thank Goddess for that! I am so grateful for that!
And those moments of joy, or contentment, or pure presence, give me hope that not all of TIME will be noticed by me. That sometimes I will let it go without feeling the need to wonder about it.
I don't like wondering about it. Better to not know that soon everyone will die and that there's nothing to make our lives "larger" than what they are.
There is a lot of beauty in the world. If you take a moment to notice it.
And how do you perceive time?
What do you want to accomplish in life - and are you already doing it?
How often do you have moments that bring you sheer joy, and do you believe it is possible to increase the moments of joy?
