Where on the time continuum of past-present-future is there freedom to create the best possible experience for yourself today and into the foreseeable future?
I was on my way to King City over the weekend to check and adjust some people at King City Natural Health Centre and then leave at 11 am for a friend’s funeral in Mississauga at 1:00 pm. I decided that I would need to stop at Timmies and pick up a sandwich for lunch. Because I had left early and the traffic was light on Saturday morning, I had lots of time to stop and do this impromptu errand.
This made me think. If I had left just enough time I wouldn’t have had the freedom to stop because lateness wasn’t an option. I realized that there are two ways to be. I can always be early or I can be late Think about this for a moment. This is a huge choice. Think of the difference in ones internal state if they are always concerned about lateness. The stress of that will damage health over a lifetime. Yes the third choice of being ‘on time’ still leaves us open to the unexpected in ways that a consciously early person will only rarely encounter.
So what am I getting at in this piece? That the fact is we are designed to live life fully and the only place to do this is the NOW moment. If we can hear and grasp this concept then we may also further consider that PTC (present time consciousness) is completely available to us once we choose to master time. This to me means virtually surfing the present moment. This mastery means being capable of staying present for sustained ‘periods of what feels like ‘timelessness’ in the state of now.
I recommend practicing this on purpose rather than by accident like most us do. You will be amazed at how time slows down and life is more relaxing. The state of health is connected to the state of now.
