“Time does not move. But all changes happen in time.
“The past and the future do not exist. However, we acknowledge them. And therefore, we make divisions in time so that we can categorize events.”
“Matter changes. Therefore we need time to explain matter.”
OK. These are only a few thought provoking ideas that we can ponder on these snowy, inactive days. I am still thinking and sitting with these ideas from my teacher for Ayurveda.
This blog will be short. I do know that getting all hung up in the past and the future are perhaps the biggest detriments to the happiness of meditation that I observe in students of meditation ( and life ). If you have been my student you know I will sometime or another say: Lingering in the past is to be depressed . Projecting into the future is to be anxious. The past is gone; we cannot change it. The future: Aha ! That! How can we be sure a future will come? Why not be right here in the moment and focus on this moment. Allow time to pass. Be curious about what will happen next. So calming a thought. This one single thought, indeed,requires a giving up of control, eh? Tat!
