Our experience of time changes throughout life. First, it is an upward climb with a promise of an astonishing panorama at the top of the hill. Then, for some sooner, for some later, there comes a gradual realization that all you can see is a way downward with, perhaps, a distant view of the end of the road. Time begins to feel differently. There is not as much future left as you thought before. The existential crisis of a mid-life (at whatever biological age) enters the scene. A stubborn thought of living in the moment, here and now, becomes a regular visitor. If some of this resonates, you might enjoy reading the article by Oliver Burkeman from The Guardian: In your own time: how to live for today the philosophical way. In case you enjoy it, here is another piece I shared some time ago on a similar topic – Jeremy Clarkson on the fear of death. Enjoy!
Keeping up the “Spreading the Word” tradition, every weekend, I hope to share an article I’ve read or a video I’ve seen and thought inspiring and insightful. I feel it is essential to take good care both of our physical and mental well-being. Humans have always turned and returned to storytelling to find meaning. My weekends’ “Spreading the Word” posts are an online version of sharing meaningful stories.
keep exploring and storytelling!
