Not enough time

Do you often feel like there isn’t enough time?

Since my mid-twenties, I live with the niggling feeling that I always have more stuff to do on any given day than the number of hours it contains. Time always seems to pass too quickly.

That is, until I sit down and close my eyes for an hour. When I meditate, time simply doesn’t pass fast enough.

The main reason time flies is because we have filled our lives with activity. To counter this, we try to do more – to automate, optimize and try to outrun the ticking clock by running even faster. Alas! All of this activity only serves to dump fuel into the raging fire.

‘Not enough time’ is a mirage – one that appears more real the faster we run towards it. Instead, it helps to slow down, suspend activity and observe the empty space between the tick and the tock.

  1. True. But very difficultšŸ˜°. And I always feel guilty, if I am sitting & watching a movie or take a nap or wake up late, or spend money for anything or eat sweets, or fight with athimber…….. the list is endless…….
    What helps a little is telling myself “its ok to make mistakes”….. šŸ˜¢
