The year 2018 is passing by so quickly. The second hand of time swiftly diminishing into minutes. And minutes’ disappearing act as hours, days, and weeks, finally vanishing to become months, until here we are, already at the end of April: and somehow it seems as if it was only yesterday that we had said ‘hello January’.
Yes, time is swiftly passing by, but there is no need for us to be alarmed or worried. Eternity supersedes time and space, with endless, timeless days and nights.
Do you continue to check your watch and checking the clocks? And are you finding that there is less and less time to accomplish the goals you set and that you are barely making it in time? Just take a breath right here and know it is ok.
Not enoughness is a creation of an illusion theory that says that time is running out and that we are running out of time. But the truth is, you are an infinite being, of breath that cannot die. Your personality may be altered, changed or exchanged. The body form of which so many mistakes as themselves, choose to let us go when we least expect it to. But even though aspects of your experience may alter with time, or change or even to cease to exist as matter, know this truth, life endures forever.
And so as we approach the ending of each day, or week or month let us look beyond this single point. Yes, your journey so far took you to this edge, but there are many other peaks ahead. We have been told do not look to the right or to the left on the path, and there is a reason for this. Whilst you are still heading towards the edge that is true, but once you get to the edge of that path, you should only tarry there briefly to appreciate and give thanks.
I call the end of each month an edge. An edge that shows me that I have come this far, but that I cannot stay, I must go on. I may tarry here to celebrate and give thanks but I must go on. And whilst many wishing the security and comfort zone of the middle ground have made this the place of their abode, I am not convinced, because I am of those that have come know that it is at the edge we find our wings.
Wings as new dreams and aspirations, an inner courage to go on come what may, reasons to hope again, strength to recalibrate, an inner impulse to forgive ourselves and others, and love to love.
