I walk on a road lush with dreams,
a road of forgotten and veiled dreams,
sometimes slowly, sometimes gaily,
sometimes lost, sometimes profound,
I walk a road of unknown mysteries,
fervently finding my way through the endless path.....

Timelessness 'in' time!

I suggest you to read THIS post first to get a better idea about 'Time and Timelessness' .

There are hundreds of things that I want to accomplish within time but blame it on time for its presence is never enough for me!
Why can't this entity called 'time' exist from forever to forever? No past, present or future to crumble in into pieces that make living not just a harder process but eventually those crumbled crushed bits spatter all over leaving us dazed and lost!
Now don't be surprised when I tell you that we all do possess a capacity to live in such a way. For timelessness is a deep rooting yet simple process that connects moments like a mosaic.

Our brain have been designed to fluctuate from one incident to the other and shift the concentration from whats most important then and there to the next. Something that we refer to as 'prioritizing' in a layman term.
But such prioritizing not only makes us too much dependent on the past, present and future of events but also gives breaks or rather snaps the harmony of concentration making us 'restless' and then eventually 'depressed' and 'stressed out' on the in completion the that 'task' in the priority list.

I don't endorse the fact that prioritizing is bad but all I want to explain is that try and concentrate on the 'broader' view instead of meager tasks that seem to have little importance in the long run. This can only come by visualizing time as a whole.

An Urdu couplet by Ghalib goes as 

"ishrate katra hai dariya mein fanaa ho jana
dard ka hadd se guzrna hai dawa ho jana"

Its only when the droplet of water get immersed in the sea, its pinnacle is achieved. Ironical though it may seem.
Similarly only when we can let time be converted to timelessness can we achieve that real crowning point in life and beyond.

And now a quote that I found impressive and inspiring :

"Just as we envision all of space
as being really out there,
as really existing, we should also envision all of time
as really being out there,
as really existing too" -  Brain Greene
