Time Marches On

    June 21 marks ‘official’ summer time, although like so many things in
    Ibiza, summer time here is a little different. In Ibiza we run on our
    own time and the summertime starts when the clubs open so summer time is
    well and truly already underway! Running on ‘Ibiza time’ isn’t a foreign
    concept, even to the tourists. Essentially, something magical happens in
    Ibiza, which interferes with ‘time’ on the island. Even though ‘time is
    just an illusion’, and ‘time is what you make of it’ each of us has a
    different perception of the meaning of time.

    Like anything, your perception of something is what makes it real for you;
    but the essential issue here is to make the most of the time you have,
    whether it is in reference to a weekend, a fortnight, the whole summer
    season, or all year – the key is to be present. Being aware of the time
    you are in; that is not thinking about the past (how it was yesterday/last
    year/time/in the old days). Nor thinking about the future (only one more
    week/day/night/hour)… focussing on what you are doing now gives you
    total freedom to enjoy the moment you are in.

    Buddhists have been practicing this for thousands of years and is
    integrated into their way of life. Children and animals are masters at
    living in the moment as they have no concept of time, as they simply live
    by instinct and enjoy every moment, only doing what they want to do, when
    they want to do it.

    We have all experienced those ‘times’ when you feel like you are lost in
    what you are doing because you were wholly there – the activity captivates
    you and you become totally enveloped in it, not knowing anything else:
    that’s flow. People often describe this feeling when dancing or singing or
    painting or creating something. Live performances often capture this and
    are able to relay it by projecting this energy into the audience. Imagine
    if you were able to sustain this feeling at all times? Like with
    everything in life, practice makes perfect. It is your choice how you use
    your time. And also how you choose to perceive it. Whilst in Ibiza,
    remember the time is always now.
