This brief article is going to be discussing the idea of meeting yourself somewhere down the road of time. To be precise, you’ll be meeting your other self at the exact halfway point in your life. Imagine sitting in a restaurant, drinking your coffee, and all of a sudden you see yourself in the booth across from you. Only you’re older. Just by seeing yourself, you’ll immediately know what’s going on and depending on your state of mind and the life you lived up to this point, you could be either thrilled or horrified.
Now, what if this concept was universally known to mankind and we would be able to experience this encounter as a sort of wake-up call.
I myself am somewhat unsure of whether or not I might grow old at all – judging from my heritage I mean. Since the majority of my grandparents passed away in their early sixties, ideas about how much more time I’ve got on this mortal coil end up creeping into my head.
As of now, I observe these thoughts neutrally and with care, and that’s kind of how I developed this idea. I’ve been thinking about what would happen if a future Martin approached me, gave me a big hug, a kiss on the forehead, and a compassionate look. He would smile, give me the highest of fives, and say:
“This is your Half-Time High Five!”
Now make it count because whatever happened before this day, you can let it all go and start fresh because you have exactly the same amount of days, months, and years ahead of you. If you have any unresolved issues, resolve them. If you have any dreams you have put on hold, start manifesting them and create the circumstances that will allow you to experience them. If you haven’t told your loved ones that you love them very much, do it now!
From here on out, there are no regrets!
We have the chance to turn our lives around in an instant and the only thing that’s required now is some decisiveness. So there’s still plenty of time, we just have to choose to change.
I’m well aware of the fact that this concept might be appalling to some. The question of whether we would benefit from knowing how and when we die is probably as old as conscious thought in humans. Some people will be scared of this idea, but I would like to move the focus away from this anxiety-based point of view to the possibility of honestly and sincerely getting the second chance we have all asked for when we find ourselves surrounded by loved ones that fade out of our lives.
What I want you to take from this short article is the question: “What if my time was coming to an end and I had only a certain amount of time left?”
Am I scared because I have so many things I still would like to do, see, experience, feel and get to know? Or would it be sad because we love our lives and love the way we are surrounded by the things we appreciate and cherish but have lived our days with purpose and have followed our dreams as best we could.
The “rat race” many of us get stuck in grabs a hold of us again and again, and it is important to step out of it for a moment and consider what it is we would like to do with our lives.
Wayne Dyer had one principle that he had talked about in many of his books and lectures. He said, “Don’t die with your music still in you.”
How cool would it be if we were able to meet ourselves, get some kick-ass vibrations and a solid reminder that if we still have our music in us, it is time to bring it out into the world.
This is not a call for fame and glory, it is about what we are hesitant to do because we are afraid to fail or look stupid.
I can only recommend meeting the person that I talked about, because this is possible through meditation. You can become still in the mind and meet your Half-Time High-Five Partner. Give him a hug and ask him if he has something for you and if he needs something from you. Before you part ways, you will give each other the highest of fives and celebrate your life. We will never know for sure when our time has come, but we can do our best to live each day with purpose and joy. Carpe Diem!
