Agree? Disagree? 3rd Opinion?

Hi Constance…as I know all you wonderful people are busy, as am I, this item really caught my eye and then tugged at my heart afterwards…that word renunciation grabbed me and really brought me a lot of conviction.

If you would, check it out, think on it, and tell me if you agree or not!

Blessings, Charissa

Being too busy can be a form of laziness. Be sure to prioritize your time around the things that matter most to you. Effective time management centers around using this very moment to be fully open to our purpose and renouncing all that distracts us from it.

    • Ahh..I think of a verse that says “Teach us to number our days in Wisdom”.

      I was talking with my BFF recently and she is a dancer…she likens the process of this to the daily discipline and focus of rigorous practice…each and every day learning the individual moves and techniques…and then in performance you put everything out of your mind and just flow.

      I think that is how figuring out our day should be…rigorous planning, and then flow in flexibility!

  1. hmmm…That is a tough one because some of us, myself included, spread ourselves too thin sometimes and we mean well, but there is only so much of us to go around and so many hours in a day. This probably sounds like a copout, but, I just know that I am never happy with the amount of time I can spread myself around, but I think I do the best I can most of the time ❤

    • EXACTLY!! You got right to the heart of the post, Lynda! Here are the salient factors:
      1. we are finite
      2. each day is finite
      3. we find ourselves adrift in this finite sea and say “NO! I should be free from this and able to do all I can imagine!”

      we find our actual essence and being in contradiction to the limits and conditions of that very being…and that is the mystery that I was aiming for, and that is where the rest of the post (below the image) kicks in…
      a. identify what is most important to us
      b. resist and overcome the “gravity” that makes us lazy and just throwing energy at everything that drifts by, willy-nilly without “work” ahead of time
      c. prioritize what is most pressing base on what is most important
      d. have the courage to resist and renounce all else either for a leftover time, or never.

  2. Maybe this goes deeper?!?!

    “…using this very moment to be fully open to our purpose…”

    I suppose using this very moment to be open to/edified through our Purpose might be challenging if that purpose is still unknown.

    • Unless one is thinking of it as accepting that purpose ahead of time? Before it is known, and yet accepted? Like me…I “know” my purpose is to be a yielded vessel yielding blessing, but each situation I encounter is as yet unknown to me. If I am not a priori open to and edified thru that purpose, then in effect I fail to be yielded and am in control, agreeing to yield only after I know it.

      However…you are tracking dead on, Dani, because it does indeed go deeper. That is where I am hoping the comment thread goes too!
