If ‘life’ is viewed as a perceptible entity, then it can be understood that ‘life’ is not focussed upon the longevity of any given individual, but on the continuation of life.
Do not believe for one instant that in the grand scheme of things, you or any other person is special, or should be entitled to anything more than another. You will live a while, you will die. Perhaps you will even produce ‘mini-me’s’, but in the human experience on this mortal coil, it is what you do with your time here that matters.

No person should ever seek to gain through the pain of others. We are not entitled to believe our needs are greater than another. In doing this, one is judging the value of one person against another. It is a false measurement… an illusion.

We all live a while. We all die.
It is what you do with your time here that matters.

We all have talents… not all discover what theirs are. Some are more profound, others are not. Some are subtle, some are far from subtle! But all have the potential to improve the lives of other people. Follow your heart, find your talent, practice your talent, use your talent to lift the spirits of others.

We all live a while. We all die.
It is what you do with your time here that matters.

The rate of the passing of time is something that we decide for ourselves.
How we choose to perceive the passing of time is entirely dependant upon the way we choose to view the events of the moment.
A child waiting for a bus will entertain themself my spinning around, singing songs, watching raindrops run down the bus shelter… generally just finding a way to enjoy themselves.
Suddenly the bus is there, and that moment finishes and the next begins.
Meanwhile, their parents are simply standing there waiting for the bus. Afraid to be like the child and have fun with the simple things… because of what others might think.
The passing of time goes so much slower for them. They are not involved in the moment, they are only waiting for the bus.
The child climbs on the bus and always wants to go on the upper deck… it’s more exciting! They see things from a new vantage point, a new way of seeing things that they are already used to.
The parent moans “Oh, do we have to? We’re only going to have to walk down the steps again…?”
They are blind to the fun that can be had.

How do we stop this from happening to us?
We must try every moment of every day to find that which is amusing, entrancing, bewitching, unusual, entertaining, heart-string tugging… anything at all that make you smile, or cry with joy, or stare open-mouthed in wonder…
As I type I am travelling on a train through the rain. I find it amusing how the stretched raindrops on the window look like little tadpoles wriggling horizontally back along the train, then suddenly a patch of blue sky shows through the dull grey low clouds. Life at over 100 miles per hour is different to what I usually experience. The speed of movement gives a greater appreciation of depth within the layers of cloud, it creates the wriggling tadpole raindrops. Oh! I just saw a radio telescope I’ve never seen before, just north of Cheltenham… It’s pointing straight up. I wonder what they’re looking at…

This is where the wonder of the internet comes in. It allows me to quickly find out about something new; a little extra knowledge enriches my life further.
Surely this is what the internet should be for… not for filling time with nothing better to do, but for enriching lives with knowledge and understanding.

Don’t just look at things, look a little more closely, see what’s different to what you usually see, use the internet to find out more, build a greater knowledge and understanding of the world around you… enrich your life any way you can… build a greater experience of living… never grow old and bored… there is fun to be had everywhere!
