Would you look at the time? Hours have passed, basic human needs were no longer an issue. Lost in the moment. The culmination of focus where everything else outside of the focus field seems to be less relevant.
Joseph Campbell was an American professor of literature. He once said: “What did you do as a child that created timelessness that made you forget time? There lies the myth to live by.”
I remember playing in a sandbox with matchbox cars. If no one were to call me for lunch, eating wouldn’t have even occurred to little me.
When you find those moments as an adult, in work, where irrefutable focus induces a flow-like behavior, you struck gold.
Flowcus is bliss.
