timeless

At the beginning of the year, many of you choose a word to live by. I really like this idea, but haven’t done it before. Perhaps because I feel drawn to too many words!

This year, the word was literally given to me.Β On my birthday, my husband said he had a word for me. His eyes lit up and he was obviously excited to share it with me.

That word was “timeless”.

When he said it we both got teary eyed. Of course, it was very romantic, yet it seemed to go deeper and touched us deeply. What we have together is timeless, and will last forever … and in my own way I am a bit like that classic black dress: somewhat ageless, reliable, neither in fashion or out of it, and turns out well on any occasion πŸ˜‰

Inner Reflection

I’m looking forward to really living into being timeless, and exploring the fullness of it’s meaning:

* Timeless is about being open, without boundaries, restrictions or conditions.

* Its about letting go of being constricted by time and being free from its apparent demands.

* Timeless happens in the Now, where time doesn’t exist.

* Its an invitation to connect to the unchanging aspect of one’s Self, inner Being and eternal spirit.

* Its about embracing that which is timeless such as curiosity, love, memories, companionship, enthusiasm, creativity … Β and many more meaningful words.

Looks like I really did get many words after all…

  10. It could be said that “timeless” is the state of mind that we are in when we remain in the present. And to be very predicatable, living in the present is one of the key learnings from our dogs! Happy New Year to you and all your readers.

  13. What a wonderful story! Thanks for sharing. A word for the new year as a birthday gift. I am curious which will be more important, your long list of New Year’s resolutions or the single word.

    • I don’t have any resolutions Karin.The single word is a personal touchstone to tune in to the timeless aspects of life and inner being. πŸ’› It also reminds me of the love that surrounds it as it was given.

      • Ah, ok, you don’t have any list of reolutions. Thanks for clarifying that. I was thinking of your recent reblog post Boost Your Karma for the New Year and the list that is contained therein. And I was already impressed by that long list. And when I heard of the single word, I was even more impressed and wondering how that would go together. That was a misunderstanding then.

  17. Val this is a PERFECT word for you. So many times over the past year or two I have found myself stressing about either the past or the future and have been pulled back to the ‘timeless’ present moment by the middle ground of your blog.
    It is your signature πŸ™‚

  21. What a wonderful and perfect word for you Val, as you often write about living in the present and live by this yourself. For me that is a goal to reach and I’m working on it daily and become better for living like that by time.

    • Nature is timeless yet she moves through the cycles of seasons … Unless you are at the very top, middle or bottom of the planet. I’d like to think I have a few more cycles to enjoy in a bigger timeless – ness! Thank you Jack _/\_
