This week my friend led a meditation on time... She began: "Close your eyes for a few minutes and contemplate time. (Pause) What do you feel when you hear the word time? What energy does that word have for you? Where in the body do you feel it?"
How you experience time can be the difference between feeling stressed or relaxed. Another friend told a story this week of being stranded at a McDonald's in a poor neighborhood, where his sister had car trouble. He waited at the restaurant for four hours for help to come. There was a security man at the entrance to Mc Donald's. My friend became fully engaged in watching this man greet with friendliness each and every person who walked through the door . This attitude of openness was contagious, and my friend, who forgot about checking the time, was changed by the experience.
