Time Is On My Side… Yes it is

“Chronos is clocks, deadlines, watches, calendars, agendas, planners, schedules, beepers. Chronos is time at her worst. Chronos keeps track. …Chronos is the world’s time.

Kairos is transcendence, infinity, reverence, joy, passion, love, the Sacred. Kairos is intimacy with the Real. Kairos is time at her best. …Kairos is Spirit’s time.

We exist in chronos. We long for kairos. That’s our duality. Chronos requires speed so that it won’t be wasted. Kairos requires space so that it might be savored. We do in chronos. In kairos we’re allowed to be … It takes only a moment to cross over from chronos into kairos, but it does take a moment.

All that kairos asks is our willingness to stop running long enough to hear the music of the spheres.” ~Sarah Ban Breathnach

I’ve been thinking a lot about time, lately. The longer I live the more precious time is to me. When I find myself caught up in a flurry of activity that I know means nothing to me I’ve learned to stop and check in with myself to see how I got there. The next time I won’t be so quick with my yes. Giving myself time to feel into something before I decide makes all the difference in the quality of my life.

It’s taken many decades for me to realize I could change the way I relate to time. I see now that time is my ally, here to serve me, if I allow it. Time creates a framework for experiences; it offers the grace of a supportive structure in which to learn and love one another and make wise choices that allow us to live well.

And with one simple breath I can transcend that structure and experience the expansiveness of Being. That always gets my Yes.

Time, like energy and attention is one of the natural resources with which life blesses everyone. We all have the same amount of each to spend or squander, as we choose. How do you experience your relationship with time? What is time telling you?

  1. I was very interested to read your blog. When I twittered you just now I realised I had mistyped. I meant to say that I too am praying for kairos in my life… on Saturday morning 6 Feb I was doing this and the Holy Spirit really moved me and seemed to prompt me. Hence I started the website saturday http://www.kairos2010.com – I wish you a peaceful day
