Time and tide wait for no man. So far as time is concerned, all of us are equals.
Transcending the barriers of time and space by…
My dear friend,
Joyfully we meet again to resume our inward journey to the soul. I welcome you to the domain of time and space because we are already there now. Everything we do from the moment of our birth till the end of our lives is defined within the dimensions of time and space. As long as we allow time to rule us, we are bound by our karma, fate and destiny and in fact, we have very little control over what happens every moment.
Meditation is the inner voyage that takes us beyond the constraints of time and space. It liberates us forever from the shackles of fate and destiny and completely empowers our freewill.
However, before we can transcend the barriers of time and space, we have to first learn how to value them by inculcating a sense of discipline into our lives. Our life, as you know, is like a time bomb from which good, bad, happy, joyful and sorrowful events explode all the time. When we lack discipline, stability eludes us, peace dodges us and success deserts us.
Now that we have turned towards the soul with complete commitment, God says, “To tap the fount of bliss within you, come out of the time concept as soon as you can. Do not look back at what you have achieved yesterday and rest upon your laurels. Do not put it off thinking that you will accomplish it tomorrow.
Yesterday is gone and you do not know what tomorrow holds. Only today is in your hands. Begin exercising Soul discipline today and enter the portals of your Soul where you are no longer bound by time and space.”
Befriending Time through Discipline
My dear friend, time and space are very crucial factors in our lives. All through life we are bound by time and do everything within the domain of time and space. We try to follow time in the external world, but we can rarely keep up with it. That is why we say, ‘Time and tide wait for no man.’
So far as time is concerned, all of us are equals. Whether we are rich or poor, young or old, educated or illiterate, theists or atheists — all of us have only 24 hours in a day. A millionaire does not have more and a beggar does not have less.
However, when we juggle time, trying to squeeze in as many activities as we can, the end result is hurry and worry. We are in a hurry from the very moment we get up because we are not ready to wait for the morrow. When somebody asks us when we want our work to be completed, we jokingly say, “I want it yesterday.”
So, all of us are active; all of us are busy. We are extremely aware that time is ticking away, that our life is ticking away.
