When you follow the spiritual life and go deep within, you can create time – Sri Chinmoy Sayings

Cancel as soon as possible all your mind appointments with ignorance, anxiety, insecurity and jealousy. Each morning is God’s blessingful beginning to transform humanity’s face into divinity’s heart. This morning a visit from my long-forgotten friend, Faith, has given me a new wave of inspiration and a new sea of aspiration. When we don’t aspire, time creates us. But when we aspire, we create time. How do I do hundreds of thousands of things? Because I create time. When you follow the spiritual life and go deep within, you can create time.
