Time is kind
Imagine that everything that has ever happened to you and ever will happen is perfectly designed to help you grow into the authentic self you were born to be. What if everyone you meet along the way in life is specifically there to help you grow? You show up exactly as needed to helps others too. Time is kind when you lift the veil and see the deeper purpose of life.
Most of us are making our way day-by-day not recognizing that we've created a pretend self in our head. This made-up self is distorting how we see ourselves and how we see others. This is the self that only exists in our thoughts. It is a master of creating confusion and suffering. It moves us through life as a mistaken identity that collides with other mistaken identities. Pretend self is always seeking and yet not finding, distracting attention, attacking and defending, all in an effort to feel real and to avoid a horrible imagined aloneness. Shakespeare's Macbeth bluntly describes the tragedy of living as this imaginary self: "Life is but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and was heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."
Time seems cruel to the false identity we make up in our heads. Pretend self tries to convince us that there's hope for things to one day be better, yet when it reflects back, it concludes that life is pretty much a cauldron of disappointment, frustration and pain.
Seen through the lens of authentic self, Time is kind. Time brings us to the people, experiences, challenges and accomplishments that are perfectly aligned with our own process of discovery. With unwavering determination, Time guides us to the truth of who we each are. Life patterns form and repeat as needed, intelligently constructed within Time. All of this with the intention of fulfilling the purpose of your life: To grow. To be your authentic self.
