Happy August & Happy Monday!
I was musing about time and it's effects our thoughts and actions. I do enjoy summer the most and long for 2 months of July. When August arrives, the sunlight is diminishing on the side of the planet I live on.
Right! I live on a planet that has been a part of a whole universe that time doesn't apply to; or does it?!
I love to ask these "koans" because it helps clean the mind of the attachment of time and the dreaded word deadline.
As a mostly energetic being (only 1/5 physical) I am as timeless as the Universe and free to release suffering, even the minor suffering of keeping up with schedules, days of the week, months, years...you get the idea?
I choose to take time today to enjoy the first Monday Of August 2016. I may not see another, so i will enjoy the bittersweetness of moving through the day and Month of August with mindful appreciation. To be present is to be at one's highest potential.
Even now as I write this contemplative Blog, in the background I can hear my College Junior enjoying cartoons on one of her last lazy days of summer break at home. That fills me with joy. To just be and enjoy! That is the best use of time.
Love your life! Share your Love!
