What is time?

When does a moment of time feel like an eternity? When does forever seem like a moment? What is it that you are experiencing in a great moment? Moreover, in that moment of radiance, of joy, of total enthusiasm, where, what, and who are you?

In this long or short event of life, time is but the measure of any moment. You have never had the experience of anything other than one moment at a time. All your life you have been experiencing one moment after one moment after one moment…and in each of these moments, the time involved is infinitesimally tiny…completely lacking dimension.

One thing to be clear about: Time is the only thing that you actually own…everything else is just a rental, including our bodies.

We will all have to return everything when we leave here. Time—now this is different—you own every moment that you pass through, and it is up to you to make the best use of each one of them, because before you know it, there will be no more moments, and it will seem as if they never existed.
