Stop Wasting Life’s Two Greatest Gifts

posted by Guy Finley

We are really only given two things in life that are purely ours: attention – the ability to give our attention to something – and the time to use that attention. That’s really all we are given as human beings, and we tend to squander these gifts.

The gifts that God, the Divine, that Love itself has given us to know what it means to be in a living relationship with what is eternal are mostly just thrown away… because we don’t make use of our time — time that is dwindling away – to take conscious command of our own attention.

We live waiting for something to happen, for something to take our attention — to give us something to think about, to stimulate us — and then we call the relationship between that movement of a passing situation and what it produces in us, “life.” That’s not life! It is one kind of life – we all have it – but so does a dog, a deer, a bird, because they are commanded by the world around them to partake in the world they’re handed by the world around them. We are meant to live in a world in ourselves that isn’t commanded by the exterior world… because if a man or woman is commanded by the world around them, what is their life?

Use your time. It’s so precious. Don’t be like most of the human beings on this planet who upon learning about the end of their mortality wonder, “What on earth did I do with my life?”, because in that moment, everything is washed away. That is what we fear most, and the fear is based on an incomplete understanding of what we have been given as a human being to slay that fear!

God didn’t put us here on this planet to serve our own thoughts and feelings; they’re not even ours. We are put here for an entirely different purpose — a beautiful, noble, sacrificial purpose — but to understand that, we have to begin to gather the right understanding.

For now, stay awake. Stay in your body. Don’t let your mind drag you around, evaluating everything you see: “I like this; I don’t like that…” That’s not life; it is literally time taking from you everything you’ve been given to be the master of time, to be in your life appropriately. Don’t waste time.
