CRISIS COACHING & CLUTTERING TIME
I remember some years ago a senior executive came to see me for a consultation. After sharing with me her numerous stresses. I said to her “Your To Do List is strangling You. Make Time for Being.” She then said to me “how do you Do Being?” That reply told me how much internal conflict and Trauma was occurring in her life.
There was no Space for Being in her life.
Restore Your Being by getting rid of Cluttering Time
Here is a poem that enrols You to get rid of Cluttering Time.
CLUTTERING TIME My forever recurring to-do list Is that what my life has become? Is that what my life is about? Is cluttering time taking over my life? TIME, what is all this clutter that you create? “No. I, TIME, do not create clutter Your limited way of seeing me is creating clutter” Oh but my to-do list is there “Yes, TIME hears you but that is your priority You never got to meet me You only see me with your clocks, watches Now with all your sophisticated devices” “Is it only there where I exist? Can I not be known and felt in other ways? Can it be that I knock at your dream door But you never hear me?” “When you do, you call me coincidence Then you abandon me Like a programmed robot Mesmerized by your to-do list” “Stuck in your head with your all-knowing Analytical mind giving you information Seemingly allergic to knowledge Obsessed with ambition” “Information is all you know TIME knowledge is lost Not to be found in your ambition Obsessed in a doing world” “Setting goals, managing Time Imagine that, you even speak about me With such denigrating words... Time Management” “How belittling your words As if I am some native under your Colonial authority No. I will not rise up to claim my independence I will leave you obsessed with your to-do list” “Frustrate you with your cluttering to-do list Mislead you with your mindless time management That imperial need of control Seemingly present as you see me on a clock face” “You think you can manage that being called TIME You believe clock face came before TIME Clock face came before seasons Oh how superficial your so-called thinking” “TIME gave you your being You replaced it with your doing Pushed me away and made me only a clock face All just a measurement” “An entity designed to function as a doer Designing my life from this dysfunctional place Always behind and you then place me as your master Designing your life” “As if you can manage that being called TIME When I gave you your being You replaced me with your doing Then pushed me away Just a footnote” “That stranger who brings you coincidences Who is crushing you to the bones Expecting to see me only in those places Where I am measured” “Only a measure of 24/7, is that it? No hints from my Full Moons or changing seasons? Could you not connect with me through your elements? Not just your clock” “If so, then yes Time Clutter will be what you will know As, you never knew TIME”
