As we reduce the noise and the complexity in our life, we are likely to discover there isn't much there. Take away the drama and what's left? This is a stark realization of how little we are doing with the time left for living. And, it is a call to spend it with things and people that are meaningful to us. No more meaningless chatter! No more meaningless pastimes! Where is the meaning in your life? Dive into that! Spend your time there! Do that! Reducing the noise, clutter and complexity brings meaning to the fore! And if nothing means anything to us, that is a call to get with remembering the things that have been meaningful, and may yet still be. Recall what you did in childhood that shut out the world, and search for how that might translate into this stage of your life. Or what doors it might open into related areas of interest. Free yourself to imagine what you might love and see where that might lead. It would be a terrible thing to live meaninglessly without making every effort to find what might spark a fire in your heart that lights the rest of your way!
What are we doing with the time that is our to live? What are we being called to do? What is our thing? When Captain Jack Sparrow says, "It's the pirate's life for me, Gibbs. I have no say in the matter. Savvy?" Do we know what he means? What is it for us that was the pirate's life for him? Do not die without knowing! And doing! What you have no say in the matter about! Savvy?
