I like trains.

I like trains.

I like running.

I like meditating.

Even though these things seem unrelated,

there is something they have in common.

Time.

Time freezes in all three of these things.


 

Time freezes when you’re on a train.

The past is somewhere behind you,

the future is somewhere ahead.

But for the time being, you’re still.

You’re problems are somewhere awaiting you.

But they will wait, patiently, until you arrive.


 

Time freezes when you run.

Only one sole goal exists: to get to the finish line.

But even that is in the distant future.

The only thing you are focusing on is now.

Taking the next step forward, taking the next breath in, and out.

Finding a rhythm and sticking to it.

That’s it.


 

Time freezes when you meditate.

It takes training and practice, but it is achievable.

I never really believed in it.

I was never really good at letting my thoughts roam freely in my head.

I was always better at finding distractions to avoid them.

But it turns out when you let those thoughts flow in,

you are able to control them.

Kind of like sliding through images on a smartphone.


 

These are the only three times where I like to imagine that I can control time.

    You actually make it appear really easy with your presentation but I to find this topic to be actually one thing that I feel I might never understand. It sort of feels too complex and extremely extensive for me. I’m taking a look ahead on your subsequent put up, I will try to get the hold of it!

      You mean the topic of how time seems to freeze sometimes? Yes, I purposely took a simple, childish, almost humoristic approach to it, because it is something that has been on my mind as well a lot lately. Actually the opposite, how time seems to be flying by and I can’t seem to keep track. And since humor and insanity seem to go hand in hand, I thought it would be the best way to approach it. Thanks for reading and contemplating!

    I liked this post. The concept of freezing time is interesting in that while it never stops, all that exists is this very moment. The past is gone and done, never to be had again. The future has yet to come. All that is exists is now, and in a sense, you’re right, it is frozen.

    Thanks for making me stop, freeze, and think! ❀
