We need to use our time here wisely and efficiently. We need to be consistently adding to life, taking initiative to grow and discover more, to deepen our understanding. Life is a precious opportunity.
Life is so full of distractions and noise and we seek them out as if we need them. This has just become an unquestioned habit. It’s great to ask yourself do I really need the radio on – the content may be interesting me but is this the best use of my time now? Noise and distractions rob us of the sense of space and time. When you’re tempted to turn on the TV and flop down in front of it, ask yourself is this really relaxing me. What else could I do with this time? Allow your mind to reflect on this.
We need time to be still, to be silent, to reflect.
Just think each of us has 168 hours to fill in the week.
What do we do with this? How do you use your time? What are the distractions in your life? What are the time wasters?
If you were to divide your day like a pie what gets attention and how much attention? What gets left out generally or almost completely?
What are the time wasters?
What changes would you like to make to this pie?
What do you want to include in the time available to you in each day, in the week?
To include something more you very often have to sacrifice something – what might this be for you?
What surprised you as you did this exercise?
Watch that victim feeling that might arise – a sense of not having any choice, the feeling that this is all too much. Don’t give into that.
Look at what you have written and ask your Higher Self and Spirit to enlighten you as to what will help you to have more order and structure and how you will fit in time to be quiet and still, meditate and journal and plan. Generate personal power and feel strong.
