Every Inch of 100 Miles…

Shaun's Soapbox // Apr 10, 2011

Shaun blog post 4.10

Today, I went for a long ride.
And it got me thinking… that…
Time is our only constant-
But the way we perceive it, is not.
Apparently, Einstein thought of the theory of relativity while riding on his bicycle.

If you travel one hundred miles
At the same speed,
Under the same conditions,
You should arrive at your destination at the same time.
But, in our perception of time,
It can pass swiftly,
Or, it can pass slowly.

When my goal is steadfast
(for every inch of 100 miles),
And my focus and intent clear…
It passes quickly.
When my thoughts are scattered,
And my destination misdirected …
It passes very slowly.

Is it your desire to reach your destination in the shortest amount of time?

Or to enjoy the process by perceptively staying focussed on the prize-
thereby allowing the perception of time to be malleable?
