I set my small electronic clock to count down from 8 minutes, pressed the start button, and stepped back into my ’embrace the tree posture’.
I relaxed into my posture and thought time would go quick as this was my 8 minute session as compared to the normal 20 minute sessions I do on alternative days.
The alarm didn’t go off and I was sure I did eight minutes.
It felt like 20 minutes.
Then I thought, ‘no this can’t be right’ and leaned forward without raising up out of the posture to check the clock.
It read 7.59.
Only one second had elapsed because I didn’t press the start button correctly.
That was the day when time stood still.
