Essence of time is self inflicted. If you ask a flower what time it is, the flower will reply “Now.” Press more and you will get the same answer “Now, the time is always now.” We construct the ideas of past and future to build some form of mental stability. A knowing that what we have done can carry us to what we will do. Stop time. Don’t let it afflict you. Be free of time's burden from seed to sprout to flower to wilt to dust.
