For this week’s theme, Johnny chose “RACE AGAINST TIME” to kickstart the New Year!
Student: Why is time so ephemeral? I’m falling in love, and time doesn’t exist. When taking my exam there’s immense time pressure, and yet meditating for 20 mins feels like an hour?
Master: Glances at the clock. Making time in our minds, it can be perceived that way. But does that make it so?
What are we really racing against? Is time just a byproduct of mind? How has it served us, or are we perpetual slaves to it?
Massive Attack – Paradise Circus Lyrics
♪It’s unfortunate that when we feel a storm
We can roll ourselves over ’cause we’re uncomfortable
Oh well, the devil makes us sin
But we like it when we’re spinning… in his grip♪
