Humans live in a high octane fast pace world where speed is king. We desire immediacy. People want things done as quickly as possible. Often when taking a journey the objective is to get to the destination as soon as.
Inorder to feel alive in this world, to feel the blood coursing through the veins people can experiment with dare devil activities. Some dice with death, jump from buildings and planes to get the high, to experience the adrenalin rush.
What if it was possible to get the same buzz from simple things in life, like taking things slowly, so slowly that one became high on the scenery. The subtleties of silence when in the presence of other members of the same species.
Does speed get us anywhere there, that is not worth taking note of here. What is it that is there that is more interesting than here?
What is it that causes us to want to rush around inorder to feel alive?
What if with all the rushing around trying to get there before we are here we are missing something critical?.
Can we ever feel settled where we are without the gadgets that take us into the next moment that does`t exsist because when we arrive we are planning to arrive at our next destination.
It is nothing new to say that being in the moment is the place to be, for sure it is not easy, when alone with no other soul around we can feel an emptiness, isolated, something needs to fill the gap.
Perhaps if we dig deeper, there is a jewel hidden in the moment we find ourselves in.
Stuck in traffic, we can desperately want to get home, things in our way are obstacles, so where there is an opportunity we put the foot down.
It may be an interesting exploration to do something radical, revolutionary, to get the most intense adrenaline rush from something we have not taken the time to notice something right under our noses. Something close to our bones.
Eternity, if we care to slow down, all past present and future exsist simultaneously within the here and now. Try observing a purple flower in a vast sea of green. It may be possible someone or something has taken the time to create it especially for your entertainment.
