Once upon a time there lived a little girl who wanted to meet stars and travel in space. She wondered thinking what’s behind the universe? From no where she got a sound reply. But she was assured that she will have an answer while she is big enough. The little child believed in those words. Gradually she was lost in the busy world and forgot her dreams. But the spark remained. Can it ignite her dreams again?
Whenever I try to make my mind stress free cautiously, I could see it going much out of control. So I just live it to that.. let the mind wander wherever it want.. And I will have my eye upon that wandering mind. So once it is relaxed it will be back to me..
If you actively try to control your mind, it will resist. Instead if you give up control, give your mind space and just watch what it does, it will cooperate.
It was challenging for me to say a no,
As it was tough for me to upset you.
Hence I was behind a yes even though,
I lacked my space and ease with a yes.
I know, they are only my real friends,
Who make me guilt free to say a no.
Who make me feel at ease to say a no.
Who respect my freedom of expression.
These statements are something which we often hear.But my question is
“Does ‘present’ exist really?”
Say, you are reading this now.. In fact you are not.. Since light rays take a finite time to bounce from the letters to your eye. Since the difference is infinitesimally small, one cannot recognize it. So when you read a word, you are reading it as it looked sometime in the past. Or each letter you read is in the past.
So how a present moment can be there..?
Or is it based on the perception..?
Somewhere I read like the “shortest time a human can perceive is nearly 0.1 second of visual experience”.
So can the 0.1 second time-frame define the present?
I was having this past, present, future confusion since my childhood. While I am thinking, it’s just NOW. But oh, no. after a moment it has become past. ..What’s all this.. Makes me utterly confused.
I donno. Am I overthinking?
Or is it like “Present is boundary between past and future with no real existence of it’s own”
I think I need to investigate more on time, more on Einstein’s relativity of space and time.
