Time Stands Still: Day 75, Men 10

TIME STANDS STILL   How often do you take time to do nothing? Do you take time to pamper yourself, take a nap when you are tired or read a book for pleasure? Many of you fill your days and nights with so many activities that you live on the edge of exhaustion, running here and running there, while you barely can keep up with yourself. Where is the quality in your life? Little time remains for hanging out with friends or a long bubble bath. Family time is almost non-existent.

Are you pursuing your true desires and passions? Do you meditate and relax each day? Do you take time to relax with your family without the need for extraneous entertainment such as television or movies? When was the last time your family had good, enlightening conversations in which everyone was sharing their dreams and recent experiences?

Tailor your time to suit yourself. Look at the areas that take you away from the experiences you prefer to have. Learn to say, “No, thank you.” when others invite you to an event or to assist them with something that doesn’t interest you. When you release obligations and regrets from the past and stop being overly concerned about future events, you are free to be fully present in each moment.

During the day, ask yourself, “What would I like to do now?” Start paying attention to the way you feel in these moments. Is what you are doing creating joy in your life? Watch for patterns in your behavior. Is there something you feel you should change? Look around, see the many blessings in your life and express gratitude for these blessings.

How often do you build a sense of love and appreciation in your life for the wonderful experiences that you have? Have you looked closely at your religious beliefs? Have you ever questioned the authority of your preachers and teachers? Look deeply at your beliefs. Take time to scrutinize what you believe and why you believe it. Try to be objective and take a fresh look at the beliefs you currently hold true.

Find ways to slow down your routine if you feel exhausted at the end of each day. There is no race against time. There is plenty of time to get all things done. However, in order to do so, you first must choose what is of utmost importance and make those your priority.   Selamet! Men 1
