Love in fellowship.
We can’t hold on to time.
Right now is the only time we have.
It is the only time we can enjoy the season, hear a child’s laughter, feel the joy of sharing.
This time, right now is the time to learn something.
And it is the time for us to know God.
Time is always moving on, but we can stay in the present.
To look back over our shoulder, trying to figure out how to change something we did is futile. When we look ahead, trying to predict the future, we are creating needless anxiety.
The present is where we exist. God speaks to us in the present.
It is the only time we have to make a connection. –In God’s Care/Karen Casey | More…
Clock time includes learning from the past so that we don’t repeat the same mistakes over and over. The enlightened person’s main focus of attention is always on the Now. Psychological time is always linked to a false sense of identity. Non-forgiveness necessarily implies a heavy burden of psychological time. If you set yourself a goal and work toward it, you are using clock time. You are aware of where you want to go, but you honor and give your fullest attention to the step that you are taking at this moment. Clock time then turns into psychological time. Your life’s journey is no longer an adventure, just an obsessive need to arrive, to attain, to ‘make it.’ The present moment is all you ever have. There is never a time when your life is not ‘this moment.’ Is that not a fact? –The Power of Now/Eckhart Tolle p.47-48
