July has arrived and with it, I am hoping that time will feel like it is moving forward once again. I say this because, in June, time felt like it was standing still. An odd feeling that is hard to put into words.
I thought about why it was feeling still, and what came to me was; it is not still, time is a unit of measure for humans. However, in the universe, time is irrelevant. It has no bearing, and while you feel it has been standing still, it has been moving forward, you just can't measure it by your standards.
Time, it seems, was created to bring order to our experiences. Think about it. If we had no time to measure the hours we need to work in a day, when would we start or finish? If we could not set appointments up with healthcare, or financial providers, would that be better or worse?
The sun rises at a different time every day, and the moon rises at a different time each night. If we rose with the sun and slept when darkness fell, well our ancestors did that long, long ago. They did not measure time. They survived by doing what was required, with the technology/resources available to them.
For the most part, I do not use a clock. Sure I work for a company so have to be there and leave at a certain time, but for the rest of my hours, I try to go with the flow. It catches me sometimes when time flies by quickly or slowly. Have you ever been so engrossed in something that when you lifted your head, it was dark and you wondered how that happened? Or been doing something that seems like it is taking forever only to discover a few minutes have passed? That is what I am meaning.
It came to me that I had been trying to make things happen in my time frame. How I wanted things to go, and hence that is why it felt like time had frozen. Obviously, it was not going as I planned! Or at least how I thought it should. No, I needed to understand that just because I could not see progress, it did not mean it was not happening. Chasing dreams requires following my intuition, my desires, my hopes. The rest will take care of its self in perfect time, on universal time, which does not exist by our measured standards. Hence all things happen when they should, and not one moment sooner!
Keep chasing your dreams; it is never too late to realize whatever you desire. Time is a measure to create order in our world, our outer world, our inner world has no constraints, only the constraint of how much we desire something. The choice is always ours, keep pushing forward - even if nothing appears to be happening, or give up - and perhaps miss the blessings 5 minutes before they happen.
Will July fly by quickly and have you wondering where it went? Or will it languish slowly and have you thinking time froze? Either way, ensure you fill it with lots of fun, love and laughter. That will ensure the best use of the hours available to you as you step into the adventures of July!
Always thinking, always observing, always wondering and pondering the things that make life go round.
