Time is an Illusion

“Time and space are modes by which we think and not conditions in which we live.” - Albert Einstein

Little Gems of Wisdom & Fun from Mary Lynn Ziemer

Albert Einstein may arguably have been the most brilliant person who has ever lived. One of his revolutionary discoveries is that time is relative. In fact, according to Einstein himself, time is an illusion. Like Einstein said, "There is only now. Now is the only time that exists." And this moment exists in whatever way we are choosing to experience it.

Einstein's explanation of the concept of time is that it is simply a human mental construct (modes by which we think)... and it comes from this fascinating conclusion.

NOW is where we experience our lives... it is the only moment that exists. The past and future are either memories or imagination. They are constructs of our mind. But NOW is the only moment in which we create our lives, based on how we feel. NOW is all that matters!

We must be very diligent about what we allow our mind and heart to focus on in each moment. Since we create what we expect, we must expect the best, and nothing less. When we are focusing only on the present moment, we will feel good and our mind is calm. And in calmness, we have the power to create our reality. When we think loving thoughts, speak loving words and take loving actions we feel good, we feel peace and we create outcomes that make us feel happy. Ask yourself these questions, then read below for tips on where to begin.

What state are you in when you begin your day?

Do you feel centered, calm, balanced? Do you feel good about yourself and what you’ve got going on? Do you have a plan that includes your priorities... the ones that fulfill you, bring you peace, and get you closer to reaching your goal? Do you focus on making your day fun, no matter the tasks on your list?

If you feel anything other than these things, try thinking about time differently....starting this moment.

Practice these 3 simple steps every day for the best results.

1) First and most importantly, take some "me-time" every day to get quiet with yourself, even if it's only 15 minutes. See how much better you feel on the way to where you are going. Even a small amount of this quiet time will clear your mind, improve your focus, and give you more confidence about scripting the day in front of you as you go.

2) Every day, during your quiet time, repeat a mantra to yourself, such as one of the statements below. (Write them down to make it happen more quickly. Writing as an action adds an additional element of focus and power.)

"I am so grateful that I have more than enough time to get everything done in an easy and relaxed manner."

“I am calm and effective as I move through my day.” I have an abundance of time to do whatever I want and I always have fun doing it."

Remember, how you experience time is relative to how you think about it! So, visualize yourself with a smile on your face, moving through your day efficiently, getting it all done, and feeling great about it. See yourself intently focused on one thing at a time. 3) Last but not least, live more presently with awareness of the activity you’re engaged in each moment. Have gratitude for everyone and everything around you, in the very moment you are experiencing it. In other words, carry love before you always. Feel love for everything you see, trust, and practice scripting everything! In other words, focus only on what you want and let go of the rest. If need be, take a deep breath and release what you must. Hold on to what makes you feel good as you look around and pay attention to what brings you joy. When you do this repeatedly, you will get more joyful outcomes .

At the end of your magnificent day, be sure to think about how grateful you are for this new kind of day you are experiencing. When you do this, you will have more and more days where you truly feel like you are living a magical, amazing life of joy!

Have an absolutely magical week full of love, gratitude and fun, fun, FUN!
