removing the Time blinders

... when watching race horses run, they often wear
side vision blinders, which help them concentrate
on the track ahead, ignoring the distractions of
the grandstands

... if you think about how your mind operates,
most of us are fitted with Time blinders, which
keep most of us thinking about just living 1 day,
or maybe even 1 week, at a time

... living paycheck-to-paycheck

... Time is a big place, and if we start
to let our minds wander, to see how BIG Time
is, we become almost insignificant

... insignificance scares us, we want to matter

... so we wear our Time blinders, it keeps us sane

... when you watch the news, remove your
Time blinders, and think about things in terms
of the millions and billions of years, which stretch
backwards and forwards in space-time

... things look different, with blinders off
