Inner Journey: MAKE FRIENDS WITH TIME
“We race to win, but at what price? Driven by the threat of time, we wonder why we feel so empty at the end of action-filled days.”
— Diana Hunt
Do you fly through each day with your eyes always on the clock? In western cultures, we’ve been taught that we need to impose our own order on life. As a result, we think we need to control every aspect of our day.
How might you enter into a new relationship with time? How might you take back the power you’ve given to the clock?
This is the time of your life. How are you spending it?
“When busyness is the measure of time, no matter how much time exists it is never enough.”

Daily Tarot: The Lovers
The world may seem to be working overtime to baffle or confuse you, but you don’t have to take the bait. If you’re offered something that seems too perfectly tailored to your tastes or desires, it’s OK to be graciously skeptical. You can appear cautious rather than distrustful. Keep things simple today and minimize getting upset by torn or unsettled feelings.
