Get the feeling of having all the time of the world…

timeTime is a rare commodity.  With the excuse of lack of time, we rush from one place to the other, try to do as much as we can within a given timeframe. Productivity and efficiency are values we seem to accept automatically as being normal and needed.  We need to organize our time, to have some time for ourselves….to relax, socialize, take care of our body.  Calculate time for our relatives, our children and our spouse.  Time is a rare commodity and time is likely our most abused commodity as well.  How did this happen, that time has become rare and so scarce?

We have become greedy with time, we act as if we are starving and we grab every little moment as if our life depends on it. It’s true actually that we are starving, but not because of lack of time and also not because we do too much, we actually could do even much more if we simply would change our idea of time.

Here we experience time…

Did you ever stand in a supermarket in the line of the cashier?  Ever waited for an airplane that was delayed?  Those are the moments where ten minutes can be like an hour and an hour like a day.  Did you ever ask yourself why this might be the case?   Can it be because you had no control, no influence on how to get it done faster? You just had one option:  to wait.

It’s my experience that the moment you lose control and you are not able to influence of what to do next simply because you can’t do anything right now towards controlling the next moment, time runs very slowly.  Of course the average person starts complaining when things don’t move fast enough or try to push things……losing control of the next moment seems to be a huge fear and for that controlling what will happen the next moment has become our focus.

I create my life….

And controlling is not controlling, yes? We call it creating these days: I create my life!  That sounds much nicer.  We create our life ─ which means if we are honest, we plan our life.  For what? A bit of happiness, a feeling of having made a difference?  So many of us run after a fulfilled life and end up with just a full life.

So my promise of the header of this blog, how to have all the time of the world? It’s simple: don’t think of time.  And I will not come with this thing of be in the moment, be present in the moment.  No, not today. Today I say:  simply don’t think of time.

Can you forget about the commodity of time and just do what you do?  Likely you can’t, because a day just has 24 hours and there is so much to do…..

It’s not the quantity of things we do on a day that messes us up. It’s our fear of not making it, missing out of something that should have been done. Losing control.

Really too little time?

It’s the stress that comes with it and we nurture that stress by telling ourselves that we have so little time.  We complain that we have too little time for ourselves, to relax. That we take on to many things, say too often yes, while actually don’t have time.   All this are expression of the fear of having not enough time. Not making it.

 Mini exercise that does wonders…

Take a moment and think of all the things you do on a day. Pick one random task and imagine this would be the only thing you would do that day.  Think about it and do it exactly the way you do it normally only imagine it’s the only ttime-2hing to do today.   How does it feel? Is it relaxed? Is it even fun?

The thought:  “I have all the time” does wonders with every task you do. It changes how you do it and in my experience I do it often even better and faster, because I give it all my attention.

We are not exhausted of what and how much we do but how we do it.

I wish you many timeless times and tasks. It does wonders.


Much love Karin

Do you know the fertile ground where your earthly being thrives?

human-bodyWhat is my authentic nature? Where do I thrive best? What is it in me that wants to thrive? Questions you might not ask yourself, yet those questions are worth your attention.

In our spiritual search many of us have experienced their godly being, that which is formless and has no ego. Mostly those experiences are during meditations or breathings and they are wonderful, yet often it’s  hard to take that state into our daily life activities. We lose that connection while trying to take care of the many responsibilities most of us encounter every day. Continue reading

Please don’t try to make this earth a better place


info-overload-2We experience enough one could say…more than enough. Time seems to be a rare asset and many of us long for some peace.

Are you a machine?

We have become a wheel in a machinery we call life. One appointment or responsibility chases the next. Happy and relieved when we are able to mark things as done we run towards the end of our day, week, month, and year and yes even our lives.  Continue reading

Life is a playground not a school

tree 3For many it’s true that we are supposed to learn something in our life, others believe it’s about healing karma and some think life’s hard lessons are there to strengthen us to be better prepared to deal with life’s challenges…  I think all of them are right.  As you perceive life, you will most likely experience life.

Lately I saw a test where they put different film music’s under one fighting movie scene. It was hilarious to see. The funny music, just made me grin when one was flying over the table after a hit. Then there was an action music, the whole scene changed for me and I felt excited and tensed. Then with the dramatic music I had almost tears in my eyes and wanted to jump in to help and comfort.

Our main beliefs we have about life colour drastically our perception and with that our feelings and impulses we experience while living, just like a movie music colours the movie and determines your experience.

For the longest time I belonged to the group of people that think that we have to learn and to develop in life in order to live a life by own design. Continue reading

Joy and happiness have nothing to do with each other. Read here how not knowing this sabotages your life choices.

Today I invite myself to be unconditionally me (2)

That I lived for the longest time in limbo and dissatisfaction was because I intermingled those two words — happiness and joy — those two words have actually nothing, and I mean really nothing to do with each other.
Let me share one of my biggest illusion. I thought always that joy is just a deeper version of happiness.  Just something that not just makes me smile but is also connected with love. I was kind of done with just being happy, I liked it but I could not put my energy together anymore to really go for it like  a nice talk, nice food,  a great party or this beautiful beach I love so much.  All this was wonderful but I had no longing for it anymore. The closest to joy I came when I could deeply connect with people, could feel love. But after some time I knew Continue reading

The beauty of being useless



Much of pain is caused in many lives because of the feeling of being of no use, or our doubt that we are a meaningful contribution, that we are doing enough or doing it good enough.

The pain is not just caused by the named above, because most people suppress more or less successfully those feelings by proving themselves that they are of much use. They are great contributors, much needed and often seemingly irreplaceable at the workplace, with friends or family, hobby or ─ you fill it in.  And we also have the martyr type who  clears the mess others make: “If I don’t do it, who will?”  Finally we exhaust ourselves or neglect other important areas in our lives like our health, friends, family, carrier etc.  Yet our (hidden) fear to be of no use is so strong that we sacrifice our real joy in order to get that little or big glimpse of being somehow important.

How would it be if we would be totally at peace with being useless, I mean really useless, unable to produce anything? Continue reading

A very special birthday gift

2016-05-06 19.44.11These weeks are our family birthdays. My son celebrates today 24th of May and my birthday is on 4th of June.  My daughter’s is a few weeks later on 11th of July. This year it’s a bit strange

that out of whatever reason, I am likely becoming aware off now, most of my family members can’t come to our birthday party and in my daughter’s case, she will not even be around on her birthday since she travels to visit a good friend in Madrid, and somehow there was no other possibility to travel. All have good reasons not to come, or just popping in shortly since they had other unavoidable things. So life has my attention and I love to know to what this invites me. Continue reading
