So often we don’t attend to our souls because think we don’t have the time. But here’s the thing: the soul doesn’t need time so much as it needs No Time.
You have undoubtedly experienced No Time. It’s where you are when you are so completely, mindfully present that time itself drops away. It’s not the same as losing yourself in an engrossing activity that causes you to lose track of time. Stepping through the portal into No Time requires awareness, and when it happens you find yourself in the presence of something eternal which exists beyond the confines of your small self.
I had a moment like that this morning. I was sitting next to the window having my breakfast and noticed the sunlight glinting off the spoon in my hand. I stopped what I was doing to behold it and was immediately transported into No Time–the dimension where all is one and linear time doesn’t exist.
It’s not a dimension you can access it with your analytical mind, so cluttered with presuppositions, categories, expectations. Stepping into No Time requires the open heart of wonder.
The dimension of No Time is always present, always available. The miracle is that something as simple as beholding sunlight glinting off your spoon over breakfast can be a portal to the Eternal.
