Would you invest your time in something risky that had the potential for return beyond what you expected?
We invest time in things that make us feel good or help us to become better human beings.
Likewise, we resent things or people that do not add value to our life because they take away from the ones that do add to it.
We live in an age when things are instant and delays are withdrawals on our bank of time.
‘Good things come to those who wait.’ But how patient are we in our wait?
Do we forget our aim and thereby why we were willing to wait...?
Things that seem easy often seem to have less value than the ones we have to work for. We learn often more from the things that test our patience, endurance, strength or courage than those that seemed spontaneous or effortless. We tend to appreciate what has caused us to shed tears or transformed us for better.
And when it comes to risk and gain on our investment of time - dating comes to mind.
In my experience dating has been fun but also had its sad moments. The dates that were significant were short-lived as well as painful. I fell fast and disappointment could not be dodged. In time I saw that there were lessons for me to gain like seeing patterns about who I was attracting and what I needed to heal. And the best dates were when neither tried to impress the other so time was favorable and yet went by quickly.
While there is no guarantee that we will meet Mr. or Ms. Through Good Times and Bad Times we can choose to see our time invested as experiences or gains. We can feel our emotions, cry, see the lessons, hang on to good memories, laugh, and share stories because it is what make us human. No time lost we just get closer to meeting ‘the one’ as they say. And experiences cannot be taken from us.
Clarity often comes in time. Time is on our side if we are aware of our power to change ourselves and to overcome what we think would shatter us on the inside. As we reach deeper levels of awareness we come to appreciate what is not bound by time.
It is not that life is tough or unfair but rather how we perceive what is occurring. When we perceive from a place of love or true empowerment then life is precious, beautiful, mysterious or what we make of it.
Time is not a factor in our freedom to love those who don’t seem to love us back. Time does not subtract from our capacity to love... many. Love widens the boundaries of our being.
Love is active, a verb, an experience and a poem unto itself that transcends time.
And perhaps overtime and likely not over one lifetime we learn to love everything.
And in the end love is a great return on our time investment. A lifetime is given to us to cultivate love. And there is such a loving grace in the Universe that we are given more lifetimes to realize the power and beauty of our own love. LOVE that is felt and expressed in many creative ways across lifetimes.
Love flowing endlessly. Maybe that is why we choose to experience life as a human being.
So we can hug, cuddle, tickle, touch, kiss, gaze into one another’s eyes, hold hands, caress and be caressed...
Love that emanates from within only to be expressed through our bodies in time and space.
Sighing: love it is boundless and timeless.
Did you ask yourself this morning how will I invest my time? And when you go to sleep are you satisfied with what you gave and allowed in?
