One of the things I have to remind myself of each day is the gift the present moment truly is. There is no past or future and each moment is lived in the here and now. If this moment was the last opportunity you had to make a difference, would that difference count?
I’ve been mesmerized by the concept of time. While we take time for granted, the concept of time as we know it in modern society is artificial at best. In the grand scheme of all things eternal, time itself has little significance. Early societies knew nothing of time as we know it today. They didn’t count minutes or hours. Instead, they respected the cycles of nature. Day/night, the seasons, and major events were in the context of the cosmos. As the constellations moved, each one held specific significance. This simpler view of life as a never-ending cycle served people well. Just for fun, look up the original Roman calendar for example or go back even further. When the Mayan calendar appeared to be coming to a cataclysmic end in 2012, it was our linear view of time that led people to conclude the world was over. Perhaps our ancestors had a better grasp of time then we do today.
The present then is really eternal and when we respect and honor it in that way, it allows us to put other things in a different perspective. There is no concept of wasting time or running out of time when you realize we live within this eternal cycle. So when we give someone our complete attention in the present moment, we are giving them a slice of eternity. In that moment we affirm their own eternal value, divinity, and sacredness. We bring the magic of the cosmos into the space and travel as companions through eternity.
That’s not to say that time as we use it in today’s society is useless. While I haven’t worn a watch in over a decade, I’m still aware of the element of linear time. It can be useful in bringing order and organization to life. I have to admit my life might be really chaotic if I were to ignore this aspect of time altogether (ah but think of the freedom if I did). Yet when we let linear time rule our lives, we lose touch with our true selves. What if you told someone you would only give them 30 minutes in which to share something important to them? Knowing when linear time is relevant and when it’s not is critical. When we are truly absorbed in the present, the amount of time we spend with another is irrelevant or the time in meditation or quiet becomes timeless.
So think about the precious present and honor it. Allow yourself to float effortlessly in the present, and you will know that you have grasped the hand of God.
I believe in the transformative power of human connection to elevate joy, restore balance, and support inner healing as you seek your highest purpose. My purpose in life is to be a guide, to share the wisdom of the Universe I’ve been gifted with, and to see others succeed. Nothing brings me greater joy than to see others step into their purpose in a vibrant and highly energetic way.
