In Meditation You Are Time

Talk given on September 9, 1999
Bangalore, India

"When you feel time is too short, you are either restless or in expanded awareness. When you feel time is too long, you are miserable or keen minded. When you are happy and love what you are doing, you simply do not feel time. Similarly, in sleep you do not feel time.
When you are ahead of time, it drags and is boring. When time is ahead of you, you are surprised and shocked. You cannot digest events.
In deep meditation, you are time and everything is happening in you. Events are happening in you like clouds that come and go in the sky. When you are with time, you are wise and at peace." - Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
