The Day of Focused Moments is a day for focusing, for just a few moments several times per day, on the things that keep us healthy, sane and grateful. This is timed via Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), so that as many people possible are having focused moments simultaneously. (Find your time conversion)
“No two minds ever come together without, thereby, creating a third invisible, intangible force which may be likened to a third mind.” The human mind is a form of energy, a part of it being spiritual in nature. When the minds of two people are coordinated in a spirit of harmony, the spiritual units of energy of each mind form an affinity, which constitutes the power of the Mastermind.” ~Napoleon Hill
Forgiveness: 5 PM UTC (12 PM CDT)
Nothing holds anyone back quite like not letting go. Whether we have yet to forgive others, or ourselves, there is nothing more liberating than a release of pain from the past. Take 15 to 30 seconds to forgive yourself for not being forgiving enough. Let go of unnecessarily tangible pain and regret so that you can enjoy more of your moments going forward. Allow the recognition of imperfection to make your life more perfect. Forgive.
Dignity, Sovereignty and Self Esteem: 6 PM UTC (1 PM CDT)
We are living in a time when everyone from those concerned about the health of our Planet to Constitutionalists are being accused of being potentially dangerous terrorists. The paranoia this creates is fear inducing and confusing, and no one is exempt from accusation. Across the spectrum we are seeing abuse of power and a rescinding of the rights of people. No one should be villainized for asserting their rights to be safe through the defense of themselves and their communities. Take 15 to 30 seconds to be grateful for consciousness, affirm your human dignity, the sovereignty of your being, and self-esteem in realizing that you are a threat to no one. We are all seeking a safe, prosperous and healthy world, and it is an absurd concept that we need to be suspicious of one another as we all affirm right to defend it where we stand.
Honest Value Creation and Production: 7 PM UTC (2 PM CDT)
There is far too much focus on people in society who create nothing valuable, and have no meaningful experience, yet they are allowed to make decisions about, and determine the course of life for those who do. There is someone or some business in your community that creates or produces something you truly appreciate. Whether it is some locally grown healthy food, some sort of trade or craft, or some other talent they have developed. Take 15 to 30 seconds to realize how lucky you are to have people around you with honest passion, talent and skill, who actually provide something for you and your loved ones in a way that is not unscrupulous and duplicitous, but honest, forthright and tangible; appreciate them, they are true leaders, and the best of who we are.
Peace: 8 PM UTC (3 PM CDT)
We go into deeper negative prosperity with every war. Smaller and smaller numbers of people benefit from them, yet they continue to be planned. Take 15 to 30 seconds to imagine yourself trading something valuable and enriching, with someone in a part of the world that a weapons manufacturer or other large industry interest wants you to be at war with. You might want to share something grown or produced in your community, or something nice to read or watch.
Nurturers: 9 PM UTC (4 PM CDT)
There are people in your life who were able to recognize a teachable moment. They saw in you an openness and eagerness to learn. They could sense that you were seeking self-improvement, that you have a sense of justice, and a desire to make the world a better place. They did not hesitate to say or do something to illuminate your path. Take 15 to 30 seconds to be so grateful for these dear, dear nurturing Mentors.
Forgiveness: 10 PM UTC (5 PM CDT)
End The Day of Focused Moments as you began it. You have to ask yourself if you want to live such a brief life holding on to long-standing pain. It will not be possible to have a revolution of honesty as a society unless there is a critical mass of individuals who have had their own. Take 15 to 30 more seconds to not waste any more time with the past, and to take responsibility for the time you have left. Forgive.
