Post 4 of 4: How to Make Time Disappear.
Can you make time disappear like a vapor? Yes!
“Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That’s relativity.”–Albert Einstein
I have made time disappear for me. I reflected on the occasions when time disappeared for me — as in dancing, being inspired to write, reading a good book, coaching my clients, being out in the beauty of nature, hanging out with my hubby. These are times when I am fully present. My mind and heart are connected. During these moments the pressure of measuring time, judging my productivity and allowing that to determine my worth disappears. For me, these are moments of incredible richness and aliveness. I’m sure you have also experienced merging with timelessness — “being in the zone,” being one with whatever you are doing.
It is so easy to get sucked into rushing, into creating stress for ourselves. These are patterns we may have grown up with and patterns we see all around–seemingly so much a part of life that this syndrome is tolerated as “this is how life is.” Never having enough time is a dis-ease that is pandemic—a universally accepted as part of modern life.
I want to challenge you to explore whether there may not be a different way. After all, being dictated by time, doesn’t have to be part of your life!
Let us fill our days with more of these timeless, connected moments that awaken in us a sense of freedom, energy, and motivation so we are better able to meet our time lines and achieve our goals with grace.
I’d love to hear, how you go implementing some of these ideas.
