Our Sense of Time
We have grown so accustomed to moving quickly, to things happening immediately, to rapid transit, to fast food, quick responses... and yet we are not designed for this on a steady, continual basis. So much around us unfolds according to a unique internal timing and it's not for us to speed it up or alter it in any way. Developing a sense of patience, of sitting with things as they transition for 'this' to 'that', would seem to be a very valuable skill to learn in these times.
“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.”
