Consciousness and Time

It struck me today as I was out walking the dog that when I have lost track of time due to the activity I was involved in.  I was totally unaware of my body as well.

It reminded me of my childhood NDE and the time when back pain made it difficult for me to stand up, but I could stand for hours when in the operating room or painting a portrait and be totally free of pain, until the activity ceased.

Consciousness does not require a body to exist, and what the loss of the awareness of time indicates is that we are in a state free of our bodies. So find those activities, pursue them, and live your longest and healthiest life.
