Unclockable!

What time really is

Time is unclockable

I read an article in The Guardian by Jay Griffith titled ‘Clock time can play havoc with your emotions’; reading the article entailed an emotional upheaval…that liberating, flying sensation you get upon receiving an insight. Science agrees that creativity requires our mind to wander so why do we keep making to-do-lists and schedules- insurances of getting things done- and sacrifice the quality of our work that may result from spontaniety? I have discussed the same thing in a post before (about the quote from The Holy Quran that a believer must  live in moments..in the present) but time and time again, I keep falling for this trap of Clocking everything. Obsession with perfection may be the convict here so getting rid of this ugly habit will take time and until then, I will keep posting about clock-addiction (:

So today, the only thing occupying my mind is my action plan to implement on the beautiful words of this article…

ACTION PLAN

1.Transform yourself into a radar: Receive the message that the universe is sending, listen to your heart..where is it gliding? The universe sows the seed of inspiration in everyone of us everyday. The seed then grows and becomes a plant- the action.

2.Let the plant grow: Now do what the universe demands from you.

Usually during the action, I play some adventurous/happy music in my head, like the Glee cover of Whitney Houston’s It’s not right but it’s okay

RESULT

Happiness 🙂

Hope this result is the same for all of you.

Neither the future, nor the past

Even when everything is perfect and all that you wished for in times of need and distress is granted, you still feel like life is not easy. It’s like you keep finding the perfect posture to sit on a small couch but every posture has a flaw; either it hurts your back or pinches your elbow. I have been yearning for vacation but now that I’m free, I feel like having my responsibilities back. Does it happen with everyone?

Then yesterday, dad solved the predicament with this
“A true believer never worries about the future or the past; he lives in moments” – The Quran.
I was relieved… and the scorching afternoon heat outside suddenly became beautiful sunshine. I’m thankful to God for having a dad like him :’) (happy tears)
Now, I live in the present.. in MOMENTS of my vacation, exploring each second instead of thinking of to-do lists. And this is not just for vacation, it’s for working days too because I really want this to be the idea of my life and not a vacation experiment. I wish we all do that and stop looking at clocks. Speaking of clocks, I’m going to leave you all with this fantastic Coldplay song, hoping my message adheres and makes its way to practicality.
