Our time is running out

The concept of time is a funny one. We have divided our lives into seconds, minutes, hours, days. We count our age as the years pass us by. We desperately wish to never grow older than 30. We make time tables, calenders and five-year plans. We celebrate anniversaries, birthdays and silver jubilees. Sometimes we feel time whooshing past us, and sometimes it crawls like a snail.

Do we know any other species that does this? Animals never look at the time, or wear watches or make schedules. They never feel scared that their time on the planet is getting over. They never have to be 'on time' or get reprimanded for delaying anything. They simply live. They take one day at a time. And it is this timelessness that makes their lives richer than ours. They do not fear old age. Or deadlines. Or death. And this is one of the many reasons which defies the human belief that we are the most superior of all species.

  2. As one of my favorite songs goes,
    "Try to make ends meet
    You're a slave to money then you die.
    'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life"

    We just end up dealing with it. :/

    Taking one day at a time is the secret of living a successful and peaceful life.

  4. Heyy ... me and papa were having a very similar discussion in Mumbai. We were saying God (if there is one) made man and then gave him a brain. The ability to think is what causes all the turmoil.
    Look at the animals, theirs' is such a carefree life. They are so much better off than us.
    In my opinion a pet doggie has the best life ... unconditional love, sleep, eat ... that all it does. It doesn't even have to work to get fed! :-p

    1. Hahahah, I remember discussing this with you once. And I agree. Remember the Animal Song?
      "I want to live, like an animal. Careless and free." :)
