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.
