Precious Moments

Lately I have been very conscious of how much life is ruled by time. When to eat, when to sleep, what time to wake up. This is inevitable in a world with work and other commitments, but I guess the key is to let go of time whenever we can.

Whenever possible be timeless. Be in the moment - in the now.

“Time isn’t precious at all, because it is an illusion. What you perceive as precious is not time but the one point that is out of time: the Now. That is precious indeed. The more you are focused on time—past and future—the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

  2. Time, so elusive when really all that matter is now, the present. Being present is something I have been working on for what feels like years. I guess it's easy to get caught up in time and it's a lot harder to stop thinking about it and live in the now. So worth the effort though. beautiful piece! love the texture, concept and colors. The colors feel like time itself. Visiting from CED.

    1. Thanks Kirsten. Perhaps staying in the now is something that takes a lifetime of awareness and effort. You are right - it really is worth the effort!
