Yes, this is true. Have you ever noticed sometimes? Let's say you are going to a place either you drive or someone else will drive you, it seems
faster when you are on the way back from where you come from than on the way to a destination. (most cases, going to a destiation for the first
Maybe because of the familiarity of the road & other landmark.
Or it could be the anticipation of getting to the destination. I know my trip to work is longer then it is home because I dont want to go to work. I
know my trip to a party takes forever, but my trip home I don't remember its like stepping in the car and out of the car. With a DD of course!
A schedual really can make time go faster.. if you have nothing new, nothing exciting, nothing to look forward to .. trust me I know.. being in
college full time, working full time, it is school, work, sleep, school, work, sleep repeat. So if you know whats going to happen at exactly 3:30 or
4pm on thursday 6 weeks from now.. what is there to look forward to? .. And so your life slips by. This is why capitalist industrial nations have the
highest levels of depression, because our way of life is to ridgid, to uniform for our human nature, we end up feeling trapped, contained within
society, unable to express your self, unable to pick up and go, make your own schedual, be able to breath fresh air or avoid traffic jams every day to
All in the persuit of happiness, prosperity and freedom I think we lost touch with our spiritual side .. and its suffering is making life
seem like it just flies by.
But it also at the same time feels like we are being propelled towards something, some unknown, an event maybe, a time or age, an event that could
harm the soul.. who knows.. but there is two kinds of anticipation, the kind you feel when its your birthday expecting a surprise party, or when
someone hands you a gift.. and then the kin dof anticipation that you feel when you dread something, when you know your going to get hit or
something.. I relate it to when I played hockey and would be pinned down by the boards and could see a big guy out of the corner of my eye coming
right at me.. I personally think we betrayed our spiritual side, we abandoned our history, we raped our cultures, we turned people into machines and
some event will correct it.
