Time, time, time…

Future will be approaching soon. Oh, future? It is already here. No more waiting will be needed.

We live looking for the future, expecting certain things to happen. “There will be a show, I’ll be happy this Friday.” Friday is gone. “I’ll be happy when I pass my exams” The exams are gone. You were happy for a day. “Maybe I’ll be happy when I have all I’ve ever wished.” You’ll never have. We are never fully materially satisfied.

Some people live in the past: “I miss the days I was happy – I was younger and more cheerful” “Only if I could go back in time” Forget that, you can’t.

Why is it so hard to live in the present? To live the now? Because our mind is a trap. You’ll be trying to be contented your whole life  but you’ll never reach there. I was thinking in ways to escape the mind. The fact is that thinking is exactly the ambush. The only way out is stopping thinking. Just feel. Your freedom is to come. Just stop your thoughts and feel the now. There is an ebullient world outside our sick brain.

Time, time time, see what’s become of me
While I looked around for my possibilities
I was so hard to please
Don’t look around
The leaves are brown
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter” (A Hazy Shadow of Winter – Simon & Garfunkel – Click here to listen)
