Conscious Affirmations: The Illusion of Time

“I remember the first day of my senior year in college, I had a meeting to go to at 5:00 pm.  Being that it was scheduled for the evening and I had traveled all morning, I decided to take a nap before the meeting and set my alarm.  After my nap,  I went to attend the meeting.  And once I got there, to my surprise, no one had arrived yet, but the woman in charge.  She proceeded to ask me why was I there so early because it was only 4:00 pm, but as I took a glance at my phone clock, all the while confused, it read 5:00…”


It was at that moment that I realized that time really doesn’t exist.  Although, the state my school was in is an hour behind the eastern standard time according to my phone and where I had been living all Summer, the whole situation seemed to be much more profound than a time glich.   Sure, it happens all the time when people travel through time zones… But what made this instance so different in my mind?

I think it was the fact that I realized that time does not stop… No matter where you go and not matter what you do.  And that the only thing that makes you aware of it is the mind; mentally being conscious about your surroundings.  Imagine if people didn’t have clocks or any means to tell actual time with numbers and/or gadgets of some sort.  The world keeps turning.  People keep moving.  The sun keeps shining, whether it is visible on your side of the Earth or on another side.  The planets keeps rotating… Nothing stops.  So in all honesty, we have no control of time.  It’s all about what you allow to make yourself aware of consciously.

I think this situation taught me to become more present in day to day life.  To not get so caught up in being “on time” or rushing to do things according to when I think they need to be done.  All that is meant to be, will be.  You have to learn how to let the universe work according to destiny.  Because when the time is right for something to occur, it will chose its own time.  So in essence, time is always on OUR side.
