Living in the city I have always been exposed to a sense of urgency when it came to time. It fascinated me as to why people lived on the edge. Now, I have become part of that city norm. We are taught that by certain ages we are suppose to experience certain events in life. For example, a woman should be married at least by her early thirties. In which prompts me to want to research deeper into the origin of these cultural norms.
For a while, as a teenager there was this feeling that the future would take care of itself. I didn't thoroughly process the fact that what you did in the present, predicted your future. So when I was making my mistakes I had a motto that when I become an adult all would fall into place. Well, that did happen, but not in the way that I planned. Now, that I'm awakened I view time differently.
I realized that we must tend to our earthly duties by focusing on the task at hand while the universe takes care of time. Our time and the universe's time are two different sets of time. We are full of impatience and that is what prolongs our time to fruition. The universe likes to play the waiting game sometimes and that tests our ability to stay faithful. If one chooses to be faithful even when the goal isn't in sight then that one will be rewarded justly. When you have a goal in mind you have to realize that there will be mistakes.
Anything worth having is worth waiting for. Sometimes what starts out as an idea can turn into a lifestyle, but when your motive is doing something because your're running out of time then you won't get to the end result. Your mind will be buzzing with that thought and you won't be paying attention to what is needed to get to the end result. It is better to focus less on time and more on enjoying the ride of life.
