Perception of Time

We tend to all evaluate  time passage and speed according to all our systems put together. Our mood influences it, Our involvement and the experience itself influences it.

Here are three drills of taking in order to receive. We take away from what we take for granted to become aware of more facets of ourselves.

  1. Avoid time pieces and place yourself in the static push up position. Choose a time interval as 10-more minutes and see when you think time is up where you are in relation to a stop watch or any other objective measure.
  2. Find something disturbing to watch (An opening of a new ladies clothes Shoppe, violence against the weak or the Israeli soccer team..) and again pre choose a time interval and see how your evaluation rests in accordance to reality.
  3. This drill requires you stand close enough to read an analog or digital clock with seconds. Note the time and turn away from the clock and start making a move from a step to raising a hand in a salute in one minute. Once you are done turn again and compare how your movement timing fared. Change time frame and movement. Repeat and remember there is always work to be done.
