~ Henry David Thoreau
As you head into your weekend I'll leave you with these thoughts.
Time is precious, but don't always feel the need to fill it with activity. Try being reflective and find your own way of being meditative. I have no doubt you'll find new value in your time if you do.
For those going the speed of light to get everything done -- slow down. Make time for quiet. Try listening to the sound of your own heart beat or breath. Find the silence in your life. Let your thoughts, those that are buried deep within, percolate to the top of your conscious mind.
Explore new ways to experience time and you'll be finding new ways to experience life. Such a simple concept, isn't it?
The expression 'killing time' rubs me the wrong way. Time, and how we spend it, is what makes up our life. 'Killing it' or 'wasting it' or being so busy it flies by, can't be done to time without doing it to our lives.
