Other people use them with a pray for get well any disease of the eye, given the foresight,meeting a good mate, passing a high school and a university.
You need to do things effectively and speedy when you have many things to do. A day, a week, even a year seem to pass by like a flash. I think you have "a time of your life", which is different from that of your work and daily things. It is a time which passes so slowly that you can look at yourself.You also have it when you see flowers and think they are beautiful, or you hear birds singing. We need a relaxing time to face our anxiety and to think quietly. We need to have a quiet time to get over our grief and to live our life. "A time of your life" passes so slowly in shrines. Please feel a quiet and slow "time of your life".
