I am going to be real with you. I sometimes go into a deep existential crisis when I think about the future of humanity. When I think… Read more “Have you met Vidal?”
I went to sleep to the sound of my beating heart and I woke up to it; when i felt an emotion, it was like feeling it in slow motion, I felt how the seed of the emotion grew from the center of my heart and expanded into every atom in my body, I even felt how it transcended my body and like a painter with a steady hand, painted the aura around me. I felt that.
the curious feeling swam through him that everything was beautiful there, that it would always stay beautiful there. Sound familiar? Paulo Coehlo also makes reference to this… Read more “Nirvana is a Second Long”

How do you measure your life?
How do you measure your day?
For the most part, TIME on a general scale, is something we take much for granted. I know I certainly did when I was young. Procrastination comes as natural as breathing.
If we squander so much time by nature, how are we then supposed to capture the moment?
Time is a precious resource, one of the most precious of all I would say. We can replenish our money, we can recover our health, but time is something you can never get back. Once you’ve lost it, it’s gone and the issue is that we take the next second for granted. We consider our every breathe to be a replenishment of the previous one, when in fact, it is not! Each breathe we take is a separate life of itself. Each one containing countless options, possibilities and decisions of which only one can emerge.
A close friend of mine asked me if I thought time stood still with a lover.
“When you kiss or make love, it feels like times stops” she said.
I believe the reason behind that feeling is because we are living consciously and attentively in the present moment. That kiss or that act of love is all we focus on. When you are in the present moment, there is no wandering of the mind to the past or the present. None of that exists. All you have is now. So it would make sense to feel as if time was frozen.
It is a beautiful thing to be in the present moment, we should all strive to live there more often.
Another beautiful think is to take chances, seize opportunities, take risks.
Life is a set of moments, all you need is one to change your entire life.
If it doesn’t work out, at least you tried.
Whatever you do, seize those 86,400 seconds over and over again!
