The experience you have of "time feeling like it is slowing down" may be the direct result of you becoming more physically aware of yourself here in time.
One is often not so aware of the time when and as a person is just going through the motions of reactionary play outs...as like just reacting out one behavior to the next as a result of being impulsed/triggered in a particular way. And within this, We do not realize our actions/consequences of our actions when we are in a particular energetic state....regardless of whether that reaction is positive or negative.
A common statement i find fascinating is, "time flies when you are having fun"
so much of the "fun" we have as entertainment is a centered around 'positive energetic stimulation'....some sort of ''high experience". And so, in many instances it's like we are not so cognitive of the time because we are in a form of reaction to varying degree's
Note: obviously this is not necessairly the case for every experience of "fun"...but this is a general overview and observation based upon reflection within myself and discussion with others.
Another fascinatingly common 'Attitude' of people in regards to Time and Work is the following:
In many instances people Like it when there work/job is very busy....because the time seems to go by much faster....and then the work/job is over.
Obviously there's a lot of angles to "Time"...i mean look at a clock....how many angles do you see? lololol. Making a bit of a joke...but also truth, hehehe.
I've found tremendous support within examining my particular relationships towards and about a WORD...like "Time" or any other Word...It's cool to look at how many different angles you can see...and within this...to see how particlular angles are opposites/polarized....and within this; I like to have a laugh at looking at the ridiculousness of the conflicting/contrasting/flip-flopping views a particular word may have...and also myself relationships within and as this....Meaning, to bring the word/point/issue back to the core of myself here....and have some self-reflection within seeing myself as It Here.
Some play work in looking at the word "Time":
Ti Me...Emit...Mite...Might....TieMe...Me It...It Me,....me tie....
Another perpsective about Time: When you are very physically cognitive of your actions...One's sense of Time is generally much better than when one is less physically cognitive of ther actions/reactions. In Sports there is a saying that is often Synonymous/associated with greatness in performance, "I was in the ZONE"....specifically the "Zone" talk....in regards to like time slowing down...and thus able to accomplish more....(hence being a more accomplished and great performer). Without going to much into this here, and to trace everything back to the begiining of this thread discusssion:
Time slows down as You Increase Your Responsibility.....So, SEE the Power in Taking ON Self-Responsibility....Because it is Your Self-Authorized Response Abilities.
Seeing that you are asking Questions and Investigating things....that is a very cool Indicator of Self-Responsibility....and Questions are journey's in and of themselves as Quest I on's..(lol)...so,
