Time shouts ...

Cultural anthropologist Edward T. Hall says,

Time talks.

It speaks more plainly than words.

The message it conveys comes through loud and clear.

Because it is manipulated less consciously, it is subject to less distortion than the spoken language.

It can shout the truth where words lie.

If this is true, how we use time tells us the truth about our life just like our checkbook tells us the truth about our finances. Just like the scale tells us the truth about our weight.

What does your relationship with time tell you about yourself?

How do you use the time you have been given each day?

Who is in charge of your life?

What or who is most important to you?

What kinds of time-wasters are you beholden to? Why are you beholden to them? Do they bring you life?

If you are always in a hurry, why are you always in a hurry?

If you don’t make time to rest, why not?

If you do find time to rest, why?

Consider paying attention to your relationship with time this week

… and let it shout truth to you about what you really believe.
