Time flies …

Another week. Christmas seems a long way away, and even the beginning of the new year is receding quickly. There is a saying that you get what you measure and I think that part of the reason that time seems to pass more quickly for adults is that our units of measurement are larger. We start to measure our progress in weeks and months, and even later years. With these passing, we’re all of a sudden months and years down before we recognise what we’ve missed. Children’s time are moments, and days. Each one full and with their passing they’re not rushing through life. So the Buddhist suggestion to focus on ‘now’ and the present moment, may help us to feel the moments and days are fuller and richer, and not flying past us.
