“Time is a created thing. To say ‘I don’t have time’ is to say ‘I don’t want to.’”—Lao Tzu, Chinese philosopher and author of the Tao De Ching
In saying time is a created thing, Lao Tzu is referring to metaphysical reality—a state of being where there is no time. Everything is unlimited and possible. Metaphysical reality is about dreams, visions, intentions, and goals. But for these to happen, we must ground them in our physical reality or else we are “metafizzling,” as the great psychologist and coach Maria Nemeth says. This means using the energy of time to manifest our dreams.
