Welcome to 2017 Time Travelers,
It has been suggested that my busy-ness and doing/doing/doing is a sabotage for what it is I want most in my life which is: relationship, connection and being. Now, it is time to be curious about my relationship with time. If you find you are having challenges with time and your relationship with it, I invite you to join me in discovering your relationship with time and journal about the following questions to get a clearer view and perhaps change that relationship: (1) What has my relationship with time been? (2) What do I want my relationship with time to look like? (3) What has to happen in order to shift #1 to look like #2? Therefore, I am re-posting the previous post as I feel it is very appropriate for this "time".
“Simple Abundance, A Daybook of Comfort and Joy” by Sarah Ban Breathnach October 12th, a passage about time.
Since the dawn of Time, we’ve tried to understand the nature of time – to control her. Time is a holy mystery, an extravagant gift meant to be experienced,
not understood and certainly not controlled. We have been allotted 24 hours each day which doesn’t seem to go very far.
Regardless, we never seem to have enough of it.
Time has a twin nature, which the ancient Greeks called chronos and kairos.
Chronos is clocks, deadlines, watches, calendars, agendas, planners, schedules, beepers.
Chronos is time at her worst and keeps track. In chronos we think only of ourselves.
Kairos is transcendence, infinity, reverence, joy, passion, love, the Sacred. Kairos is intimacy with the Real.
Kairos is time at her best. Kairos lets go. In kairos we escape the dungeon of self. Kairos is Spirit’s time.
We exist in chronos. We long for kairos. That’s our duality. Chronos requires speed so that it won’t be wasted.
Kairos requires space to that it might be savored. We "do" in chronos. In kairos we’re allowed to "be".
We think we’ve never known kairos, but we have: when making love, when meditating or praying, when lost in music or literature,
when planting bulbs or pulling weeds, when delighting in a sunset, when exulting in our passions.
We know joy in kairos, glimpse beauty in kairos, remember what it means to be alive in kairos, reconnect with our Divinity in kairos.
So how do we exchange chronos for kairos? By slowing down~By concentrating on one thing at a time
~By going about whatever we are doing as if it were the only thing worth doing at that moment~By pretending we have all the time in
the world, so that our subconscious will kick in and make it so~By making time~By taking time.
It only takes a moment to cross over from chronos into kairos, but it does take a moment.
All that kairos asks is our willingness to stop running long enough to hear the music of the spheres.
Today, be willing to join in the dance. Now you’re in kairos.
