There is an indescribable peace which is gained when you refuse to give up on yourself. It takes time, but I’ve realized that there is infinite time if you continue the practice of shifting your focus within yourself. And by “continue” I mean “never ever give up.”
Racing the Clock
I once felt like I was racing the clock. I had to get something done to move onto something else. And then I suddenly realized that I didn’t actually know what that “something else” was. There is plenty of time for whatever you want to give your attention.
Watching the Clock
We choose to watch the clock and let its hands dictate our next actions. The clock becomes our master and the truth is, it can never be beat…despite the illusion of “winning” we convince ourselves exists. What we are chasing isn’t anything physical. What we are chasing is the sensation. And sensations are fleeting when we assign them to the whim of our outer realities.
Plenty of Time
So now that we know that we are searching arbitrary Time for sensations we can open ourselves up to the possibility that there is an infinite and timeless source of the true sensation we’ve been searching for within us. And that sensation is contentment. Once you find contentment within, you will find accomplishment all around you.
