Film and not photo

Everything is in constant movement, even ourselves. Each second things change: we are older, our hair grows, we burn calories, we know something else, the weather changes, we see something we haven’t seen from where we are standing, we step where we never stood before and so on. No second in our life will be the same as any other second, even if we wanted to repeat any second in our life, it’s impossible, at least time won’t be the same.
We are experiencing small changes that we almost can not perceive, but sometimes bigger changes occur even without our consent. We lose something or somebody, we are transferred to other cities, we get wet in the rain, we catch a cold, and so on.
So, if everything changes, and we can not control most of the changes, why we try to live like a photo forcing things to stand still? Our live is not a photo we like, is a film that is rolling, let’s see what comes next.

I heard from a teacher something impressive: fear is linked to things we think we have to protect, the more we believe we have to protect, the more fear we have. Its impressive for two things, first because fear inhibit us from doing a lot of things, and things we want or we would like, and second because we are convinced that we can have control over what happens. So in the end, we don’t do things just because we forbid ourselves with no real reason. We won’t speak to a person because we fear what this person may think of us, we won’t invest in a new venture because we fear we’ll lost the money we saved for some time, and so on. What do we think we are protecting?
