Three Truths and One Wish

1. Truth: There is enough time. I know, it’s hard to believe. As much as you want to, some part of you resists, starts a whole list–“yeah, but what about…” But, it’s true. There is enough time.

2. Truth: To discover this time, there will be things you’ll have to let go of, that you’ll have to stop. I never said it would be easy, I said there is enough. First, stop all of the “have to” and “should,” all the performing and pleasing and perfecting, stay away from energy vampires, time suckers, and get clear about what you really want. Yes, you might still have to do laundry even if you don’t like it, but that’s because you probably really want clean underwear. But that other stuff, you know what I mean, can go. It will get harder when you have to start choosing between things that you love in order to get to the time, but even there, if you are clear about what you want, you’ll know what to do.

3. Truth: Saying “no” is saying “yes” to something else. I repeat: get clear about what you really want, and understand that every time you say “no” to something, you are clearing space for it. Your time is precious, spend it in devotion, adoration, gratitude, and joy, with a little laundry thrown in.

One wish: If you already know what you really want and you are denying, rejecting, or abandoning it, I wish that you would reconnect with it, respect it, give it the time it deserves. And if you don’t already know, I wish for you true clarity about what you really want.

Time is very slow for those who wait
Very fast for those who are scared
very long for those who lament
Very short for those who celebrate
But for those who love time is eternal
~William Shakespeare
