The race against time is a mistake,
A race that accelerates the very thing we are trying to beat.
The more we race the faster time will move.
Yes I do mean to say we can speed up the passage of time,
And we also can slow it down.
The more we are consumed with the past and future and less with the here and now, the more we lose the unwinable race..
If, however, we allow ourselves to sit down and not race,
To be in the seat of the observer watching the moment that we are in at all moments, we will slow time.
Sit down even when your day is filled with work and strains and worry and fears, sit down on the inside and be the observer that you truly are.
This is your true state of being, of awareness, of soul.
In this state you recognize that you are not your thoughts because you observe them coming and going like leaves from a tree washing down stream on the river.
You see your emotions rise and diminish like waves coming toward the shore, having there moment and then disappearing back into the sea from which they came.
You see your outer experiences coming and going, events, people, problems, obligations, relationships. All of it, separate from the you, the observer, aware of all moment by moment.
When you sit down in this place of the soul, you slow down time, your no longer in a race against something that is ultimately just a circle anyway. Time is a continuum for us to experience the eternal in the present. It’s a vehicle for soul to experience life in this created universe.
The race that causes us to lose instead of gain is a futile venture from the beginning, at any point that you may be involved with it, and in its demoralizing, regretful ending.
What do I do to stop this race and slow down time? I just sit down on the inside and become the observer of everything, taking it all in, moment by moment, here and now, like the child in all of us.
Not consumed with the past or fretful about the future, with all of the stuff that’s unsure, still unsure, with all of the things out of your control, still out of your control, with all the things that need fixing, still needing fixing, with all the goals and dreams unfulfilled, still unfulfilled, sit down, be still inside, wether in traffic or in a business meeting or doing homework with the kids, or laying in bed at 3am
or in the middle of incredible challenge..
You control, the person inside, the real you, and that you can stop the race against time and start the union with time by living in each moment as the observer of the entity called your life..
