Every second is sacred: From a tribal perspective, time in a metaphysical sense is instantaneous, where we are existing each day with a direction given to us and accepted (or not) by us, from higher-power(s). The rudimentary way I like to understand time, may not be acceptable to you or vice versa, and that’s ok. Make the time you have work for you. At the end of our life, our whole time in this place was a blink, not much at all. Every moment of today is a by-product of action and purpose, placed in motion from both earlier events and future events.
Somehow the only way we seem to be in the same place with time is when our mind, body, and spirit, is in the same room with our humanity. Our existence remotely appears to be a series of tests, generation-after-generation. Some we pass and some we fail at which point we keep testing until we complete the test. When we complete the test, we complete ourselves. Truth be told, every moment taken or not taken is helping us to grow in one-way or another—by the way, many of will sleep through the tests and truly live a pre-fabricated existence.
We’re operating in foretold prophecies right meow…think about it? We are re-living steps, scenarios and paths already completed by our true-selfs. My theory, this is why dreams, déjà vu, and synchronicity, all appear at a certain time—helping the mind, body, and spirit reaffirm and awaken more and more. Think about this, you have always been—what you were meant to be—you just have to KNOW it and do something with it. Live for today! Don’t be weak!
