To know what it is time for-- and not for-- is true knowing. One time is not as good as another. What is it time for here and now? What is it not time for? Teachers cannot teach us these things. Books are of no help. Videos and movies are useless. Lectures and sermons, even worse. The things we need to know come from the heart and from life experience. Listen to the silence in the midst of loud noise. Know what you know beyond being able to say what you know, or explain how you know it. Knowing what is called for is knowing what it is time for. Knowing what is not called for is knowing what it is not time for. Be still. Be empty. Just listen. Just look. Just know. The right action arises of itself, without motive or intent. Just knowing. Just doing. Seeing and hearing what needs to be done, and doing it. Dancing with life is a ballet with time and place. Feeling the music and moving with the flow of the here and now.
Receive what the moment brings you as the miracle it is when you treat it as such, seeing it as the very thing you have been looking for, waiting on, even as you wonder how best to bring forth its blessings in the time and place of your living. We do not think our way to the insight that transforms our life. We allow the answers to arise within of themselves in response to the experience of time and place. The flow is dynamic. The way is rhythm and movement, balance and harmony. Rigidity of expectation and stipulation has to give way to intuition and ingenuity birthing what is needed in the moment it is needed, in response to what is offered and called for-- as the song sings the singer and the dance dances the dancer and the painting paints the painter... Take what comes and see what you can do with it, which includes separating what is useful from what is not and leaving what is not behind.
