“Well, when you’re relaxed, your mind takes you to the whole reality. There’s no such thing as time when you’re really relaxed. That’s why meditation works.” ―Shirley MacLaine
Since the first post appeared on this site, 2570 days ago, every day is today. Each morning we wake up aware of time as it was before the greatest illusion of all was invented.
“They took away time, and they gave us the clock.”
A sandman jabs a stick in the sand, and its shadow circles round like a sundial. A glass blower yanks it out, and the sandman’s sand runs down through the hole.
“The more sand has escaped from the hourglass of our life, the clearer we should see through it.”
Enough water has flowed over the damned, since the Chinese water clock cursed them with interesting times, to boil a few thousand-year eggs.
“Time is indeed the theater and seat of illusions; nothing is so ductile and elastic.”
―Ralph Waldo Emerson
Before retiring of an evening, if you empty the hourglass of interesting Chinese water into the glass blower’s hole in the sand, and hand the stick back to the sandman, you arise to a new day without an alarm, the greatest illusion of all.
“Begin at once to live, and count each separate day as a separate life.”
―Lucius Annaeus Seneca
