Holding the Moment Still
Time really have no mercy. It simply does not travel at the rate you want it to. I have been in the mountains of Chiang Mai for the past few days, and just when I was relishing the fact that I have a long 5-day silent retreat for myself, I am already in the last day.
It is still morning and I just had a very good session with my spiritual director, and I look forward for the day today.
I want to try to hold every moment still, to suspend it.
Impossible, I know, and yet I hope that the more mindful I am of it, the longer the moment will stay. This last day of retreat may just feel like it lasted a really long time.
