Own Your Time

What do you understand about time?
Are you the owner of your time?

Having time means the time is your own. You should be the owner of your time, otherwise your thoughts, something else or someone else will own your time. Here is the secret: if you know how to own your own time, you will not be trying to own others’ time. You will not be bullying around or bossing around people. The whole world is nothing but a huge fight to own more and more people’s time. Whether it is the field of politics, art, science, or even the field of religion, it is nothing but owning people’s time. In any other field, the more you own people’s time, you are considered a big guy. According to Paramahamsa Nithyananda, a living incarnation (fondly known as Swamiji), he once said that the desire to own more time is the subtle reason even for giving birth to kids, bringing them up as they want, and fulfilling in their life whatever they want to have in their life.

Create Space for Sattva, Inner Balance


From the Vedic traditions, the ancient mystics, seers and rishis discovered that there are 3 gunas (qualities or zones) of being that are constantly playing in our life.

The first is Tamas which is the state of fewer–thoughts-fewer-actions, i.e. the state of dullness or inertness. The second state is more-thoughts-more-actions, the state of restlessness or hyperactivity which is called Rajas.  The final guna is the fewer-thoughts-more-actions i.e. the state of inner balance, restful awareness and a feeling of being “alive” which is called Sattva.

In an ideal flow of  day of a typical human being, we should experience Sattva in the morning, Rajas in the afternoon and Tamas in the evening before we rest our body-mind into deep sleep. However, if you look at our modern civilization in the digital age, you see a disturbing picture because the state of Sattva is very lacking in our city life.
