Eyal’s theory of Relativity…

The words quickly and slowly are so vague, as they can only be measured in relation to the speed of other things respectivley, the rabbit is faster than the tortoise, the bicycle is faster than the rabbit, the car faster than the bike, train faster than the car and bullet faster than the train. So the tortoise in this example is slow, until you compare it to continental drift…

I suppose the point i’m making badly, is that in life we will always be faster than some people and slower than others (I don’t need to remind you about how long it takes me to do the washing up) There is nothing wrong with living at our own pace while everyone else works at theirs… but there is one thing to be careful of, and I think the best way to convey this is through a quote by Ghandi;

“There is more to life than simply increasing it’s speed.”

Hans, last time you came to visit me you mentioned that you cannot wait for the days, in several years time when you have already escalated to the level you want to be at. That all of these years in the middle is just time to be endured… and I at times feel exactly the same. But they’re not, waking up in early winter to see the sun shining is not a moment I would have liked to have skipped over, and when I am laughing with my brother so much that I have no breath left in my lungs, when I am sitting in my room playing catch. at those times and countless others like it I wish time would stop and I could exist for eternity in that moment.

There are people who move slowly in life, and people who move quickly in life, but I don’t think speed is the issue, I think it’s pace. The question you should ask yourself isn’t “Am I going to fast for everyone else?” it should be “am I going to fast for myself?”.

Everyone gets there In their own time.

  1. I absolutely agree…!

    A very important point is, that the journey is the reward… as we all know, Confucius said this once. But it is very, very true. I would have a huge problem, if I reached the end of the ladder I am possibly climbing up at the moment, just now. Of course, it is not nice, it is not easy and it is absolutely not always a pleasure and a lot of fun. But… imagine you are there, you reached this point of your life… what do you do then? Will you be happy? And if so, why? Because you left all others behind, you reached this point faster than others… maybe this is all true, this might be a good feeling. But, and I am sure this would hapen… would you not feel that you missed out your life? To me, it sounds a bit like becoming old too quickly, and you all know why I like Peter Pan. I am not afraid of getting older, but I insist to give it a little more time. Yes, I also would like to skip certain levels of this journey to reach a point where my work and everything is well respected and established. Where “I am” someone. But then, I also feel this would perhaps cost me too much… I don’t know… :)

    So much for a short comment. Sorry if this is a little confused… but some things mentioned in the past two posts got me thinking… and I hope HP, everything is OK for you at the moment. Hope we can all talk together next week…

  2. Oh, don’t worry about me… I have plenty of time to enjoy the great moments – as I said; the world spins slowly :)
