I would suggest you all watch this doco from Ian Lungold, he talks about how time is a illusion and that it's not time speeding up but in fact our consciousness is accelerating at a higher rate of manifestation in accordance with the mayan calendar as we head into Dec 21 2012 it gets so fast it becomes unbelievable. Watch this doco and everything will make more sense. Peace & Oneness.

I know the feeling but its time that is going fast, its just our busy schedules. People used to have more time in their lives. Now it seems you always have somewhere to be, or something to do. Sometimes I just stop and look around, and see everyone running doing whatever you have to do. You would be surprised sometimes how rarely one actually stops doing something and takes the time to just take a breath and enjoy that exact moment
Except I have less in my life now to distract me. I have begun meditating and constantly take time to take a breath and enjoy the moment (I go visit the creek behind work during work a couple of times a day while at work).
Not everyone who is experiencing this have busy schedules or are too wrapped up in "day to day" life or TV. I don't watch or even own TV, I have no children, I have no significant social demands that aren't at my whim, no family demands, reasonable work hours, and plenty of time to sit and contemplate and just... watch.
And I feel all of us swooshing along quicker and quicker. In fact, it seems to me that those who *aren't* noticing this are the ones who are still with their heads down so focused on chasing politics, sports, money, etc that haven't picked up on it yet. Even this isn't consistent of course since everyone's path is different... just a trend.
Perhaps you know the feeling on a surface level, but haven't stopped enough to pay attention to it the way those of us who *have* slowed down in response to the sensation have. I specifically quit my former job, sold virtually everything, and finally moved to my "dream location" partially because of what I started to sense happening around me.

Firstly, i dont make many threads, so mods i hope ive posted this in the right forum
Ive got to get this out , just to see if anyone else is experiencing the same as me. This has been a "situation" that has pestered me for the last few years.
LIiterally, it feels as thought time is speeding up at an incredible pace in my world. I know that some say that the older you get the faster time seems to be going by. But i cant believe it goes this fast.
Im seeing a friend this week who i havent seen for six weeks, and it feels like a week, last Sunday feels like a day or two ago, my life is flying past me.
Its really bizarre and i hope i dont sound like im nuts. Has it affected anyone else? Perhaps its just my imagination, but it feels real.

Ya but even ten years ago i felt like the days seemed longer myself. But i know that there is just as much time in the day as there was when I was a kid, its just a matter of perception. I take two points in my life and compare them during the present and i can kind of get an idea of why time seems to go faster sometimes.
I will say again this is just personal experience. When I am at a point in life where I have no goals, or something i feel I am working at to achieve time flys by. Compared to when I am working towards something, or planning ahead I am keeping myself aware of time, so that awareness allows it to slow.
