The ancient Greeks had two words for the concept of time:
1. Chronos; the chronological and measurable clock time. Quantitative in nature.
2. Kairos; the time of experience. Subjective and qualitative. Sometimes hours feel like seconds. And vice versa. It is the time you experience in the ‘FLOW’. Or actually you do not experience time. And there is only ‘being’.
“Time is flying by” indicates the discrepancy between experience time and clock time. Because the latter simply passes by at a rate of one second per second.
With the passage of time (1. Chronos), ‘time’ (2. Kairos) seems to go faster and faster. Is it because we are getting older and that we have fewer new experiences, or because of our increasingly hurried, stimulating and more demanding society?
“My mission is to touch the soul, and I won’t settle for less.”
