68. In 3 Minutes
Think a moment about the elasticity of time. How it seems to drag on sometimes and whizzzz by other times. Time flies when you are utterly engaged with the all of you. There are slow times and fast times, there are green times and blue times, old times and new times… It really is quite a dynamic and multi dimensional thing – time.
In many cultures there used to be one day of the week set aside for resting together, being together in a slow, expansive, open, ‘sacred’ time, where the pressing matters of the world were totally disengaged from for a while. It seems we are forgetting how to do that.
All too often we say to ourselves, “I don’t have the time!” and thus instruct ourselves to shrink everything down into our busy, pressed for time, stressed out realities. But…
How time is for us, from moment to moment, is all to do with our state of mind and emotion, our attitude and perception – all of which are in our hands.
There is always, always the time! It depends entirely on our state of mind.
There is a thin line between ‘open time’ and ‘closed time’, between time in which everything is possible and time in which all doors seem to close. We inadvertently close ourselves off by how we habitually handle stress. But…
It is possible to change old habits by making new ones!
