the time being.

Standard

and once again

daylight savings time comes to an end.

for the time being.

“do not think that time simply flies away. do not understand “flying” as the only function of time. if time simply flew away, a separation would exist between you and time. so if you understand time as only passing, then you do not understand the time being. to grasp this truly, every being that exists in the entire world is linked together as moments in time, and at the same time they exist as individual moments of time. because all moments are the time being, they are your time being.”

―  13th-century Zen master Dogen Zenji, as quoted by ruth ozeki – A Tale for the Time Being

  1. Lovely quote. One of my current activities is playing film fragments from around 1910 or earlier if I can find them, and just looking at the faces and the expressions and marvelling at how immutable human nature is whoever is expressing it, at what ever time and any point in history. Its humbling to see people who are long since past on dancing and smiling at the camera as if they have eternity.
