My meditation this month is 'time'. It fills our days. The sun comes up, the sun goes down, the earth rotates and the universe continues moving through time. As humans we have managed to 'manufacture' a lot of our time. We have rules for it, we try to tame it, even change its parameters twice a year. We worry about having too much time on our hands or not enough time in a day or a month or a year.
Recently I had the opportunity to take a drive with my hubby where he was to attend an a half day meeting. It was held at a beautiful lodge in the mountains but it turned out to be a grey, rainy, wet day. I settled myself in a chair, opened my book and started to read. I had a cup of tea beside me, my book and a beautiful view. I wasn't 'filling' time while I waited for the meeting to be over. I was letting go of time. There were no errands to do, no deadlines, no responsibility I had to fulfill. Just a block of unregulated space and I realized how seldom I allow myself that kind of freedom.
A word such as 'time' is literally a never ending source of meditation and thought for me.
