Many years ago I met an Indian sailor in a coffee shop and we began to tell stories —my cup of tea! I was fascinated by these stories of distant countries and cultures. Then he told me something that stayed with me above all else.
I had never heard that English proverb before.
Since then, the most incongruent human habit that I’ve encountered is this:
Time is life. The only time when you don’t have time is when your life ends.
How can you see time as a thief that steals your life, your joy, purpose, dreams and opportunities?
Time is the giver, not the taker.
People who say that they don’t have time to do what they want are blaming time for choosing to ignore the call of their heart and refusing to do what makes them happy.
The second most incongruent human habit I’ve encountered also has to do with time.
- They say that they want to write a book. But they never set time aside to write.
- They say that they want to make more money. But they never set time aside to reflect on how to make more money, examine their financial habits or learn how to make money.
- They say that they want more friends or a beloved. But they never set time aside to examine their relationship patterns, clarify what type of friends or beloved they want or to take actions to meet these people.
People who say that they want to manifest something but do not place it in the time-space continuum are fooling themselves because they don’t believe that it is possible or that they deserve it.
If you identify with any of this, then understand that to make an invisible, non-localized thought, idea, dream or desire a physical 3D reality in our world; you must first give it time and space. Only then can it materialize.
Time is tide. It waits for none.
So get cracking!
