Well, what’s this class about? I want to focus on time right now, right now. If you’re loving your life, you’re loving your life in a present moment in time and so, what’s occurring to me is, “Oh, if you’re loving the details of your life, you’re loving this second. You’re loving the details of this moment, so you’re loving time.”  Wow!  [laughter] Excuse me, but I’m like… I spent most of my life fighting time and just as I said that, I really feel like… Wow!  .  .  .   “loving time” .  .  .  . Wow! [laughter]  What a concept, and I’m actually having an experience of it right now, at this moment. Wow!  “Loving this moment.”  I’m… I’m actually speechless, and from my understanding of love that… Yeah, love is… Wow! Love is really a very, very, very present moment experience. Wow! Love time. Wow! If you’re loving the details of your life, you’re loving the details of this moment.

I can’t .  .  .  , it’s blowing my mind a little bit. Wow!  “Loving this moment, loving time.  Love… Love the details of your life.”   If you’re really doing that, if you’re really loving your life in the moment, you’re going to be loving time, ’cause time is part of your life. Wow!  And I never thought of that before. Yes, time is part of your life, there’s an objective element of time, and there’s a subjective element of time. And they, I don’t know, integrate in you in at any moment in time.  Right. You don’t exist like, what’s the word, in a vacuum or divorced from time. You’re part of time. Your existence in this moment is part of time. My existence in this moment is part of time. So if I’m loving the details of my life in the moment, I’m going to be loving the time part of my life. Wow! And the time part of my life is not separate from your time, actually. [laughter]  Ah, wow! I’m still… This is blowing my mind, and it’s wonderful, having this sense anyway, of loving the details of this moment. Wow! Love the details of this moment.

Ah! Yeah. And now I’m like, “What stops me from loving time? What stops me from loving the details of each moment? What stops you from loving each moment?” Love the details of your life. Love the details of your life every moment, every moment, every moment. Wow! Which includes loving the detail of the moment, loving time. Love the detail of the moment. There’s no hurry. There’s no hurry to live your life. Your life is happening right in this moment. Don’t go too fast and don’t go too slow. Time doesn’t go fast some times of the day [laughter], go slow some times of the day. Wow! Wow! I’m really falling in love with the time. [laughter]  “Getting to know you. Getting to know time.” [to the tune of “Getting to Know you, getting to know all about you” from some musical from the 50’s or 60’s] Oh, my goodness.

Well, that’s what love is. Love the details of your life. Love the moment. Wow! I feel so in love with time. [laughter] And what do I mean? I feel so integrated with time in this moment. I never felt this integrated with time as I understand that. Wow!

And that’s what love is. Love is an integration experience. Love is being integrated with reality in that moment. Wow! Love is being integrated with reality when you’re loving, when you’re feeling that love. Now, I’m not talking about lust. I’m not talking about that, although that is the metaphor for love – is making love. That’s the supreme human experience of integration when you’re making love with another human being. Wow! Not having sex; making love. Loving this other human being, paying attention to the moment and yourself. Wow! That’s integration. Love the details of your life. Love the details of your life.
