As 2016 approaches, consider this:
Doctor: “Get all your affairs in order. The prognosis in cases like yours is about three months. I am sorry, there is not much to be done.”
You: “But three months is not enough doc.”
or “But I can’t do all I need to do in 3 months.”
or “But I haven’t started fully living yet….”
What would you actually say?
Who would like going to the deathbed wishing to live life all over again to only then literally get to enjoy it?
Truth is, time is diminishing and no one gets another shot at going back to yesterday. Nobody needs to have a serious illness to wake up for the call to live. With every tick of the clock, time decreases. Low aging numbers should fool no one; they are no guarantee for long living.
The only granted time is the past and the now. In reality, the idea of ownership over time is an illusion. People say, “I don’t have time,” or “when I have time,” but no one holds control over time. Humanity believes it “has” time. But it is impossible to manipulate time, freeze it, change it, or even avoid it. No one possesses time, but time possesses each, and everyone.
Even though authority over time is not possible, the manner by which we interact with time can be managed. Connecting to the present moment is an individual decision and can only be reached by self engagement to the given moment. No one can live time for others, nor feel it, perceive it, or interact with time exactly the same way.
How different life would be in the now if there were knowledge on its finishing date. So why wait? Would life be more treasured if there were a price tag to every single moment?
Would self-prioritizing be easier if there was a guidebook for each one on how to make the most of life and time? Would living life through a guidebook be fun, enjoyable, or authentic?
No matter how time is approached, as something scarce or something abundant, it is a precious commodity and perhaps the biggest humanity commonality.
Everyone, regardless of location, ethnicity, or religion, has the exact same twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
What is time in life? Is it possible to see time surrounding life? Is it possible to see life surrounding time? Time might be seen as life’s biggest asset simply because time is life, time is existence. And life is framed in time.
Isn’t it a shame to see so many people, wasting and ignoring time due to inability to be resilient and move forward?
What a great challenge it is to fell stuck not knowing how to move forward!
What a great pleasure it is finding enjoyment in moving forward!
Through the course of history so many have wondered what the secret for joyful living is.
This enigmatical ingredient does exist. This unrevealed element sought by so many at all places and levels is readily available. It resides conveniently within the self. It resides in one, and in everyone. Can’t be stolen, must be guarded.
The ‘secret’ lies in living a life true to the self in pure authenticity, true to honoring own intentions, capabilities, and capacities, listening to the call of life to be lived, and praising the worth of living more enjoyably. The question should not be asked on what the secret is. The question should be asked on how to identify a unique representation and manifestation of joyful living in each singular life. It is time humanity contemplates that we are all different selves and joyful living manifests itself differently in each one. Every human being has a unique fingerprint and every human being has a unique perception on joyful living. However, the continuous outer search for ‘the secret’ as if it were an object to be found, clouds the signals sent by life to be appreciated without further delay, simply because it is ready to be cherished.
Why postpone living if time and life won’t wait?
What if delaying life becomes too late?
What to wait for?
