“How to stop time:  kiss.

How to travel in time:  read.

How to escape time:  music.

How to feel time:  write.

How to release time: breathe.”

*author unknown

Ah, yes just breathe…. and all time and eternity are yours.

How to be absorbed by time – stay in the moment, and notice everything.  Be there with and in time, as one moment moves to another….

Enjoy the Passage of Time

-James Taylor

The hurry sickness has left me.  The ease of the morning to contemplate life, nature, the day, fulfills a longing to sit with the purity of being here now.  Hearing those words, there is a knowing, a real knowledge, that being fully present, attentive, focused, and aware truly does bring peace.  The gift of life is acknowledged in these moments – and these moments expand to hours and inform the days.

The house still needs to be cleaned, bills paid, the plants tended… with the awareness of the morning extended, these small tasks take on a sacred feeling.  Every movement a prayer.  This is not a constant state of course – for me.  The periods of time though are extended more and more….  I need so much less to feel full.  Less activity, less doing, more be-ing is a grace filled way.
