A sweet way to make time timeless

Time is too slow for those who wait,
too swift for those who fear,
too long for those who grieve,
too short for those who rejoice,
but for those who love,
time is eternity….Henry Van Dyke.

Time is an amazing concept, and even as we feel we understand it, it becomes more elusive.

I’ve discovered a way to turn time on its head, and a sweet way to actually create more time.

No, it’s not a time machine, where we might go back and live over again (and again) the past, as in the movie Groundhog Day. In fact, it’s not about the past at all.

And no, it’s not some sort of slow-motion molasses way of living. Well, maybe it is that after all, since there is a rather “sticky” and sweet quality to this way.

Time becomes richer when it’s lived fully, and when loving fully.

That’s it! My secret’s out!

Just love someone, love yourself, or simply love living. Or better, yet, do 2 or 3 out of these three. Each moment becomes almost infinite with its tasty richness.

Although I can’t tell you your own path towards this time-creating life, I’ve seen that for most of us it begins with loving ourselves just the way we are. Starting with acceptance and letting go of self-judgement, many conditions we put upon ourselves and others drop away and we can be more open to loving and living.

  1. Thank you, Hariod. It’s a delight to see you “here” and be reminded of our collective connectedness.
    Ah, no, that’s not me in the picture. Although it might well have been, as I’ve been observed to ham it up in front of fun-house mirrors, and small children. I found this fun photo on the web with a creative commons license generously shared by FarOutFlora.
    Thanks for generously sharing your time and thoughts.
