I would meditate but I don’t have enough time. — Me.
How often have I said the above to myself? Then I realize I need a better perspective. Just like the only difference between a good day and a bad day is my perspective. I can endure and suffer through my day, or I can change my attitude and today is a beautiful and full day.
The beauty of meditation is I can either consider it a waste of time or I can give time a rest. Meditation is pure time. Time uncontaminated by aggression, passion, or speed. All that is necessary is that I sit and do nothing.
A wonderful man I knew explained it this way once. “Do you think anyone ever walked by Professor Einstein‘s office and saw him sitting in a chair and complained he wasn’t up at the chalkboard or writing? No, they tip toed by being as quiet as they could. Why, because Professor Einstein was thinking.”
We always have time to meditate. It’s not wasting time, we are thinking.
