Motivational Monday – How to Carve Out Meaningful Alone Time!!!

Have you considered how to carve out meaningful alone time?

Have you ever wondered how it is that after decades of time-saving inventions and new technologies that ‘free time’ has almost disappeared from our culture?

“Lost time is never found again.” ~ Benjamin Franklin

SPIRITUAL INERTIA?
Are we time-poor, insolvent, bankrupt? Is ‘free time’ a relic of the past? If this is the case, I do believe that we are in trouble. Could it be that we are headed for the Land of Spiritual Inertia?

The great masters tell us that we need to carve out daily time for solitude.  Not just to get away from the kids, or our boss, or the white noise of the day.  Rather, we need to carve out a time where we can sit in solitude; a time in which we can explore our inner landscapes and unearth our passions – our purpose.

You may have imagined using your free time, your hour of solitude to head to the spa for a mani/pedi or a massage, or perhaps, you envisioned taking a solo stroll through the park.  Lovely and worthwhile, I am sure.

LIVING WITH MEANING AND PURPOSE
Consider, however, utilizing these precious times to delve deep into your soul, to explore, investigate, to wonder – “what might I do that can give me the sense, the satisfaction, that I have lived fully and with meaning.”

If you already living what you deem an authentic life, with purpose and meaning, then ask yourself how you might carve out more time for inner exploration, remembering that time is the most precious of commodities.  With all our brilliant technology, we’ve not found a way to manufacture more time.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” ~ Steve Jobs

FIND TIME FOR MORE TIME
Don’t allow time to slip through your fingertips.  Today, think about your day and find time for more deep thinking, you-time!!!

Spread the word … NOT the icing,

    This reads more like a “Why to” than a “How to” – but it BRILLIANTLY gets at why we need alone time and reflection. Great article!
