Feeling the balance in constant transitioning while getting a sense of standing on a grounding time.
Some inspiring quotes…
“And something’s always missing, a glass, a breeze, a phrase,
And the more one invents and enjoys, the more life hurts.”
“It must not be claimed that anyone can sense time by
itself apart from the movement of things.”
Lucretius, De Rerum Natura
“But they will teach us that Eternity is the Standing still of the Present
Time, a Nunc-stans (as the schools call it); which neither they, nor any
else understand, no more than they would a Hic-stans for an Infinite
greatness of Place.”
Thomas Hobbes, Leviathan, IV, 46
The specious present, is “the prototype of all conceived times…
the short duration of which we are immediately and incessantly sensible”
“From Aither, Time made a shining egg: the progeny of Aither and Chaos.”
Perhaps the constantly shifting balance between presence and transformation is the essence of life.
It reveals its beauty, induces contemplation and reverie, provoking the mind as it enthrals emotion.
