'Lack of Time' - Words of Don Juan

Perhaps these words will shed some meaning:

"For me the world is weird because it is stupendous, awesome, mysterious, unfathomable; my interest has been to convince you that you must assume responsibility for being here, in this marvelous world, in this marvelous desert, in this marvelous time. I wanted to convince you that you must learn to make every act count, since you are going to be here for only a short while; in fact, too short for witnessing all the marvels of it..."

..."You don't have time, my friend", he said. "That is the misfortune of human beings. None of us has sufficient time, and your continuity has no meaning in this awesome, mysterious world."
