The Nature of Time

Standard

We are both burdened and blessed by the great responsibility of free will. The power of choice. The future is determined in large part by the choices we make now. We cannot always control our circumstances but we can and do choose our responses to whatever arises. Reclaiming the power of choice, we find the courage to fully live in the world.

The world of nature moves in rhythms, patterns and cycles. The passing of the seasons, the movement of the stars, the ebb and flow of the tides. The seasons do not push one another, neither do the clouds race the wind across the sky. All things happen in their good time, rising and falling like ocean waves in the cycle of time.

Energy follows thought. We move toward, but not beyond what we can imagine. What we assume, expect or believe creates and colours our experience. By expanding our deepest beliefs about what is possible, we change our experience of us.

time does not change us, it just unfolds us

  1. I really like this post Njari. It is true that we don’t often realize we have this power of choice. I had read something somewhere about the passing seasons, how it is important to live fully in each one of them, just as the plants and the animals do, slowing down our rhythm in winter and appreciating the sun rays in the summer. Thank you for this reminder. V.xo 🙂

    • Stayed tuned V 🙂 I’m working on a post about Sensing the Seasons :)!! and being observant on the cycles of time / seasons. I like the idea of being in the flow of natures rhythms – it reminds us of the birth and rebirth process. xo
