These days it seems as if time is speeding up, or maybe we are just experiencing life differently. Maybe there is a quickening of consciousness on a spiritual level. Maybe an awakening on another level.
It just seems that the days are moving faster. Suddenly it’s noon, and I’ve been going since 6 am and the time just flew by. It’s the same movement of time. Yet I seem to be experiencing it differently. My dreams also seem to be more intense and have their own “dream time.” The minutes and hours are clicking away. How we manage or perceive, or spend our time is our choice and one that we can be grateful for.
About a year ago, I had some thoughts about time in a way that caused some reflection on life. I looked at the alarm on my phone and noticed the stopwatch feature. If you haven’t seen this lately, please open up your phone clock now and take a look. When you press “start” you see time moving in milliseconds, and each second appearing in the third digit from the right. Those milliseconds are moving very fast. This is time-in-motion as it is happening now. Just by looking at it there might be an “aha” moment of “make every minute count”! Sometimes those milliseconds are like thoughts that just keep streaming in non-stop. In deep meditation, it’s always a nice experience when moments occur without thoughts for a change. (note to self)
And in these precious moments that we call time we are witnessing, and experiencing intense polarities of views in the news, extreme shame and blame, and possibly a disconnection from those areas of inspiration, those feelings of deep love, and those memories of better times. It’s easier to be stressed out these days. Yet sometimes we can stop and still cherish precious peaceful moments, even in the midst of chaos, like the peaceful eye in the center of a hurricane.
In these precious moments, let’s remind ourselves of our connection with a Divine Spirit, a higher power, and an energy that transcends time as well as infuses it with Being. Whatever our perspective is in this area of life, let’s also celebrate these precious moments to whatever extent works for our sanity and peace of mind.
It’s easy to be in overload now, have you noticed? One idea that I have used effectively as much as possible that allows for information to be less intrusive on my mind is “living in the question”. I even wrote two blogs about it. Here’s the recent one >
