The Problem Is We Think We Have Time – Positive Reflection Of The Week
Why Delay? Seize The Moment & Make Every Second Count – Article by Shahwana
Many of us take life for granted, we make plans and say “I will do this and that when am of certain age”. It’s not now, because we think we have time.
Jack Kornfield, in Buddha’s Little Instruction Book, says, “The trouble is, you think you have time”.” In other words, we put off important things, assuming that we can do them later, but there may not be any “later”. Life is short; make good use of it.
There is one simple thing wrong with you – you think you have plenty of time … If you don’t think your life is going to last forever, what are you waiting for? Why the hesitation to change? Start with small things, the moment is now for example, the clock is ticking, and this ‘moment’ is gone forever. Notice your breathing, being aware that each breath comes only once. Each breath is unique. Being aware that the breath you’re taking right now will never come again makes it seem more significant and worthy of attention. It’s important to take note of the now, and understand the value of every second that passes by, will not return. Suddenly you realize, the precious moments. Think about those around you, about those close to you, about those you’re connected to with ties of blood or love. How much quality time do you spend together?
In the world of today, much of time is spent on scrolling through social media pages, we don’t pay attention to the partnership of love and humans next to us. Time drifts by, one day that clock stops ticking… Life is unpredictable. When you’re with someone, you have no idea if you’ll ever see each other again. Everyone you see today—this may be your last encounter. And maybe you should behave as if it was. What last impression, what last words, would you like them to have of you, should either of you die tomorrow?
Take control of the 86,400 seconds of each day, they are precious, spend them well.
