Moving or standing still?


Just because it feels as if you're standing still doesn't mean that you're not moving.

The black portions on the left of this page are cut from a time-lapse photo of the sky. It is the movement of stars. Or, rather, the relative 'movement' of stars because of the rotation of the earth. Yet we don't feel the movement of the earth. It feels as if we're standing still. It is only when we look over time that we can see that there has been movement.

Life can feel like that. We feel as if we're not moving, but if we take a look back we might find that the reality is different.

Just because you feel it doesn't mean that it's real.
