Time is on Your Side

"The distinction between the past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion." -Albert Einstein

Little Gems of Wisdom & Fun from Mary Lynn Ziemer

Albert Einstein may have arguably been one of the most brilliant people to have lived. One of his revolutionary discoveries is that time is relative. In fact, according to Einstein himself, time is an illusion. In one of his many famous quotes about time, he said, "There is only now. Now is the only time that exists."

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. The past only consists of memories and the future is only imagination. They are both constructs of our mind, and only exist in our mind. Therefore, NOW is the only moment that actually exists in reality, and is the moment in which we create our lives, based on how we feel. This moment exists in whatever way we are choosing to experience it. So, we must be very diligent about what we allow our mind and heart to focus on in each moment.

So, how do we overcome that "stubbornly persistent illusion" that is "time"?

1. Start with getting calm and quiet. Every day, during this 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."

2. 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 calmly 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. When you feel good emotionally, that’s how you know you are truly living in the present moment.

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!
