So Let’s Begin…
REIMAGINING TIME SLEEP MEDITATION SCRIPT
Take a moment to center yourself,
To wipe your inner slate clean.
Give yourself over to a moment of peace,
And take a break from all in your midst.
Sometimes, you just need to slow things down,
To give yourself time to think.
But when time itself evaporates before your eyes,
It feels impossible to slip away.
There’s always something that needs doing,
Always someone to make a request.
You say yes, and yes, and yes some more,
And then run out of time and space.
You feel like a fool for agreeing,
But you’d feel like a jerk for saying no.
There’s no good approach to pleasing everyone,
And the clock works against you at every turn.
Don’t blame yourself for your kindness.
Don’t beat yourself up for trying.
If anything, change your perception of time,
Stop competing with an invisible opponent.
Think of time as a powerful tool,
A way of ordering your world.
Use it to serve your purposes,
And set it aside as often as you can.
Decide when you are off the clock,
And when it just doesn’t exist.
Take a block of time back for yourself,
And don’t worry about the risk.
We may owe the world certain things,
And we definitely have bills to pay.
But our hearts and souls have clocks of their own,
And the world at large doesn’t have a say.
The freedom to reorder time like this
Is already in your grasp.
You don’t need permission, it’s more like a decision,
One that belongs to you alone.
It’s often difficult to claim what we own,
Even when we desperately want to do so.
We think we owe others more than ourselves,
And we pay the price without question.
In truth, your allegiance must be to you,
For you are your greatest ally.
When you need affirmation of your own importance,
Your heart and soul will gladly comply.
Though things get cloudy in the outside world,
Making it tough to see what’s real,
The view is always crystal clear,
When you peer out from deep within.
So push that outer clock out of the way.
Consult it only when you must.
You don’t want waste even one soul minute,
Giving power to an unnecessary device.
So let it all unravel, this image of time,
That makes you feel like there’s not enough.
Feel yourself fly free, aligning with your soul,
Knowing that this is the stuff.
