Time & Meditation : Part 1

What is time?

Time is persistent, consistent and flowing in one direction without a gap. Time is rhythm :24 hours in a day, 12 hours of day and 12 hours of night. Mental time is created by thoughts. Physical time is in breath.

Time is independent. Time is what you give attention to. We prioritise our time and become responsible for it. Time is currency so be on time, every time.That’s why everyone says time is money. Time is the body’s sixth sense. Time provokes absent-mindedness but it does so by liberating us from our environment and offers us our unattached condition.

Time is free but it’s priceless. You can’t own it but you can use it. You can’t keep it but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it, you can never get it back. There are many phrases or expressions that are associated with time: pass time, waste time, kill time, lose time, all in good time, about time, take your time, save time, a long time, right on time, out of time, mind the time, be on time, spare time, keep time, stall for time, dead time, there’s still time and maybe next time. No one ever thinks ‘it’s too late’.

Everyone has the same 24 hours in a day; it’s how you use it.
