Wasting time has never been easy for me. Always I have felt if I’m awake I should be doing something: taking care of chores and things I need to do, gaining new knowledge or abilities or extending effort toward my dreams and goals. I have come to know that emotional and mental rest is critical to being content and enjoying life. The frenetic pace I used to maintain accomplished a lot, but was like eating food and barely tasting it. The realization came that was only existing and NOT living. Filling the space of my days with activity without ‘tasting the time’ is a sort of conscious sleepwalking. Being too busy will always be an old habit that refuses to completely die. However, I am fully capable now of, at least at times, letting time pass without any need for accomplishment. There is something amazingly fulfilling about being keenly aware and present in moments of time as they pass by. Now that’s living!
Awareness is the greatest alchemy there is.
Just go on becoming more and more aware,
and you will find your life changing
for the better in every possible dimension.
It will bring great fulfillment.
