"Time is a very precious gift–so
precious that it is only given to us moment by moment."

Amelia Barr

Dear Straight from the Hearter,

Have you noticed there never seems to be enough time to do all there is to do?

This hunger for time has become progressively heightened lately. So much so, that I decided to give myself the gift of 48 hours of silence. I want you to know that "silence" is not something I usually run to, in fact, I avoid it like the plague, staying perennially busy with my all of my projects, relationships and never-ending lists of things to be done. 

But my soul was screaming, "STOP ALREADY!" and I knew it was time to listen. I had to stop the human DOINGingness and experience human BEINGingness. So, I turned everything OFF. Yes, everything! No computer, TV, newspaper, telephone, music...no contact with the outside world. Just me with nothing I had TO DO. Yikes! What was I going to do with all of this time!

The first thing I realized was how illusionary time is. Have you ever noticed that sometimes it seems like we have none, days speed by like moments. And at other times moments can feel like days. 

It took about a day to adjust before I amazingly started to see my life with fresh eyes, in new and creative ways, opening to things I hadn’t noticed before. I felt myself become PRESENT in my own life. And life became more precious to me. All of life. Love began to fill the spaces inside that only stress previously occupied. And that was only the first day! 

Fear less, hope more
Whine less, breathe more;
Talk less, say more;
Hate less, love more;

And all good things are yours.


I wonder why it’s so hard to make time for OUR lives. To take the time needed to relax and reconnect with ourselves and each other. Many of put this high on our "to do lists" only to watch our good intentions swallowed up by the business of our daily responsibilities. Have you noticed that the more you try to keep up the pace and get ahead of your obligations, the more there isto do! When we continually put our renewal time on the back burner, our lives can become one monotonous, stressful day after another. Notice where your attention and focus goes. Do you want to see, feel, and do things differently? What are you waiting for? What would you want to change if you had the opportunity to live the life you want to live NOW? The challenge is in creating the space that allows you to set these changes into motion. Start by taking some time for yourself. This link will take you to an exercise which can help you to redefine your time priorities.

My wish for you is expressed in the following prayer by Edward Searl...


Time enough for you;
Time enough to laugh when you are happy, to cry when you are sad.
Time enough to strive and succeed, to rest and be renewed;
Time enough to discover deeply, to give freely;
Time enough to love selflessly, to be loved satisfyingly;
Time enough for you to be your essential self
And to enter eternity by living fully in the moment -
One with self. One with others. One with life itself.

"A Place of Your Own"
by Edward Searl
