Wishing our Lives Away
6/1/2011 1:57:01 AM
"... live in the now and just BE."
This morning, as I was brushing my hair in front of the bathroom mirror, my spirit guide, Dinahh, suddenly slammed into my mind with one of his whispers. "Catherine, you will write about this. You humans are always wishing your lives away. It is important for you to live in the now and take time to just BE."
I listened to him, trying to form an opinion so I would understand where I stood on the topic, and to try and lay a foundation -- how would I write about this, as he's asked me to do?
I could easily sense where he was coming from. We humans are guilty of that -- all of us do wish our lives away, at times, but in our defense, it's done only in ignorance and innocence.
* We wish it were the weekend because the job is stressful.
* We wish it were next week -- it's time for our evaluation and we want to get the raise.
* We love the holidays and miss our families, so we wish Christmas would hurry and get here.
* Teens can hardly wait to grow up and be eighteen and then twenty-one.
* Most parents look forward to their toddler's first words, or being potty-trained, or their first steps, and wish their little ones would reach that age.
* When we're tired, we wish it was bedtime.
Yes, I could sense what Dinahh was talking about. We're all guilty of it -- wishing time would move faster, whether it's a year, a week, a day, or only a minute. Life is already too short down here and we need to slow it down. We need to relearn how to live in the moment, be aware of a simple blade of grass, the color of the sky, or how one drop of rain feels when it hits our skin. If we are aware, we can find the joy and the magic, in the now, especially when we're holding a child or a lover close and feeling the incredible flow of love, and the spiritual energy flowing through us, as it does everything in the universe.
Dinahh: "Catherine, there is magic in every second, it is already yours. All you have to do is be aware of it, accept it as the gift it is. Do not rush through life and miss what is in the now."
Okay. I'm going to try harder to live in the moment. Dinahh says there's nothing wasted in the universe -- everything, including time, is exactly where it should be and when, even us.
