Stop right now….

What would it be like if we were to freeze for a few minutes???

Not like everyday or something, but once in a while?

Just to let our body know we care about it and that we care about things around us as well. While i was reading the “Slow is beautiful” post, i realised that we are all too busy going from one minute to the next, that we hardly take a minute off during the day. Either we are working, studying, talking to friends, going out, travelling, or just about doing something..

Infact I was talking to a friend about how 24hours is not enough, i need more hours in a day.. And then, after the chat i was flummoxed.. I wondered if ever there will be a day when i would have enough time… i don’t think so… the more time i have, the more things i do, and the more i do, the chances of getting into new stuff increase, and thereon happens the need for more hours … its a vicious cycle~~~

Sometimes i wonder what is the point of all this? where are we headed? ok, so i work hard, and earn decent sum of $$ every month.. Then i buy stuff that i’ve dreamt off, ok… then what? where does it end? or does it?? do we keep living our lives like a robot? endlessly working towards one goal or the other? i mean, in the end we all are going to die !!.. Off late, i’ve been trying to take off atleast 5mins once every 2days, and not DO ANYTHING.. I mean absolutely nothing.. i just sit still.. no tv, no book, no computer, no people around me.. nothing… zip squat nada… and know what, it helps relax my mind.. At the end of the time, i feel a bit calm and very relaxed, like i’ve just had a lovely massage. It’s okay to let your mind wander on its own and get clear of the clutter…

This also helps clear our head and give us better perspective on life… also known to increase concentration… trust me on this one…

What say? can we stop the clock every once in a while for a few seconds or minutes??

I found this video where people in US froze for about 5mins, right thre in Central park( the railway station) and the same happened in UK as well.. I was like “wow”.. Infact there are people who are drinking water, reading a book, eating a banana, who’ve all pushed the pause button~!!

Adios!!
