1888's Take: We create the flow of time in our minds... it dilates according to our perception of the moment and how much we are paying attention to it. This is why when we are having fun it seems to fly and when we are not it drags. But, stepping outside of time through meditation is like a vacation for ones sanity. Meditate focusing on the breath, attempting to lose all words and all worries involving time, and let yourself experience the joy of being. A break from the over thinking will do you so much good. Don't worry if this is difficult in the beginning. It will become easier and more beneficial the more you practice." - Nathan
