Eric’s Sunday Sermon; How to Manage Time and High Blood Pressure

Updated on March 2, 2020

This column has gone on for years. 10's of thousands have congregated here. We have a message of love. Eric Dierker is the author.

Bridging Time

I cannot count the times I have crossed that bridge, and I have not burnt it behind me.

Antique Notions

Time management is a neat idea. If we could manage time we could slow it down or speed it up. We could even manage time to a standstill and/or reverse it. “Time management” might be different. It could mean staff members who manage time. Now if I could manage time could I completely slow down my blood pressure? I like to check my blood pressure. No I do not really check blood pressure because of health. I like to run in and check it out when I am in a certain way. Get angry and go check your blood pressure. Which music does what to blood pressure and does love effect it?

To get straight to the point love is the best tool to manage time and control high blood pressure. If we get stuck in the rut of managing time to me more productive and to think of our blood pressure only along health lines, we miss the boat. How about we manage love and not control our blood pressure but just notice it.

Now make no mistake the methods we use here will make you more productive and healthier.

Get a Mantra

Really I mean it. I have a few. I try to manage time so that I deep breath intentionally several times a day. Simple actually I breathe in and think love and breathe out and think cleanse. Works for me. More about breathing later. I am an admitted “Jesus Freak”, so another mantra is “thank you lord Jesus”. Hey it works for me. Probably doing this aloud on a city bus is pushing life a little. The mantra is to set intentions. The breathing is to remind us that we get to breathe. If you do not have good intentions and are not breathing life does not suck it just ends.

I you feel like you need an extra jolt of coffee or an energy drink (natural or cancer causing) manage your time with this technique it is quite interesting. Until you do it a few times do it sitting down. For 30 seconds. Adjust for light headiness. 4X4X4X4. Gulp in air for 4 seconds, hold for 4 seconds, breathe out for 4 seconds and hold for 4 seconds – repeat.

Now check this out. I was at rest with 118/72 71 pulse rate. Went to 134/81 68 pulse. Just like if I went for a short brisk walk. Sit down and rest and just breathe in long and gentle with your intention on love. You know you blood pressure will change. You see I consider respiratory, pulse and diastolic and systolic as things to manage. Perhaps control.

Does that manage time?

How We View Time

All time management is easier said than done. Sorry but I like my little life, foibles and all. I would no more get more organized than stick a stick in my eye. Just within a ten minute span my wife will reorganize our kitchen. Drives me crazy as I just organized it. Hihihihi. I organize my day and my son falls down and cuts himself badly, well there went my organizing. I told him to fall down between 4 & 6 so it would fit into my schedule. Organizing time is different really. I like to organize and manage my time not what I do or have. If I act and intend in love then time is almost irrelevant. I only use an alarm clock so that I do not wake up ten times to check the clock. I have not been late to an appointment since I can remember. My mom was adamant on that note. Being late means you disrespect someone else.

Exercise More

I never have said that I spend too much time exercising. Maybe too much time doing exercise and labor that I care not to do. Now that is bad time management. Not because I did it, but because I spent the time not loving the fact that I could.

I cannot control you or the world. But I can manage me. I can make my world stop. You may carry on at your speed. I wonder which is which with the above blood pressure and breathing; is it, the faster you go inside the slower the world or is it the slower you go inside the slower the world or the inverses? If I am going at the speed of sound and you are relaxing? Well you can see, we really do not manage time. We can manage how we do the time we have. Notice we did not say manage what we accomplish in the time we have. “Do” encompasses intentions. And loving life is the best intention as all else will follow in love.

Simply a different perspective.

The Olden Days?

Make Love to Time -- Or Make Time to Love

Now please tear up you schedule and calendar. Put the pieces on the table. Try to go a day without putting them back in order. Mine is more like a list of stuff to get and do. Saturday and Sunday I was scheduled to write a sermon. I did. They stunk. But I did not waste time. Edison said; “Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” He also said to the effect that he did not fail 2,000 times to invent a working light bulb he had simply discovered 2,000 ways not to do it. My stinky sermons still have purpose, I just do not know what it is yet.

Anarchy and Chaos

Now I like calm and easy most of the time. I use a lot of that time practicing and getting ready for the fast and hard. I am still a thrill junky at heart. In that I have so few and they are managed, I like crisis because it tells me to cast all else aside “for now”.

That brings us to the “in vogue” notion of being in the present moment or in the now. Kind of like not to manage the past and the future but just the now. That sounds like sound logic. But then go back to your pile on the table. I personally plan before going to the grocery store. But then I adjust based on the freshest produce and the best aged other things. Squeezing vegetables and reading labels is never a waste of time.

My wife buys things because they are on sale for a great price. So she goes to the store without a list. Just the notion to plan for the week. So her time is in the moment but planning for the future. I personally think it is a good expenditure of time to dream about what wonders will come my way at the end of the hiking trail. I have never met a person who starts to meditate and becomes less productive, yet meditating “takes” time. (Away from what?) Time passes until we do.

Stuck in the rain and fixing a flat tire in the mud and late for a meeting. Think this way. We are to love our enemies. So we must love the enemies and plunderers of our time. Like accidents and idiots. So if you take that time in the rain and love it, it is not a waste of time. Manage your time by loving life. Love life and it does not matter what you are “doing”.

In closing – finally a sermon that is not a waste of time.

      So beautiful. Time is precious and we need to find a way to manage it. I love this part of your sermon, "So if you take that time in the rain and love it, it is not a waste of time. Manage your time by loving life." Life is too short and we need to enjoy and love the 'rain' and the enemies as well. Great job, Eric.

      Oh when they were going to give me shots in my eyes and I was real hesitant to let them do that my husband said to me "Suck it up Buttercup" I have had two shots and the torure device of the Laser. Hey they could use that with trying to get answers out of some people! When they started doing that I said to my slef sure you numbed it up as I grabbed the handles when they did it and I thought it took about an hours. I can't take things "lying down" very much but [eople keep telling me to rest my eyes. Good Grief I hope your cancer can be removed and healed real soon. Takes time...I don't like hearing that either!

      Debra it is great to hear from you. They just decided that the cancer is causing my arthritic type pain. My young son told me to deal with it. He meant lie down and do chores later. Damn fine advice. Not that I took it "lying down" hihihi

      If we decide to cut our hair different and have a different look it can be startling. So much more so to feel like a limb is cut off and let others do what we do best ;-) Lets check out tomorrow.

      What a peice to write about! I have lost a lot of time management with my stroke and eyes not seeing what I used to see and my doctor's appointment, You are ding good as I have caught a few of your sermons. I know about the confusion of re-organizing things. My husband now has to do the dishes and laundry and he doesn't do any of that the same way I did. I had to give up the perfectionism of my Household duties and just learn to give in, not give up. Things are nothing the same as they were before my strok and grappling with typing and working on my blogs. Keep going on as I have most things. I will not give in just because someone tells me too. Giving up is not in the cards for me or you.

      Your MD is right. They are doing what they can. Still, we are largely a product of cause and effect, that is why it is so important to Love.

      Guruji used to see problems in some children all the time. So easy to fix. Yet Spiritual Masters of the highest order can only work with God's Will, and they generally don't interfere.

      In my case, I nearly always know what's going on. They would stop when the lesson is learnt ... when the Karma is burnt out.

      Bear in mind that there are variables in health: history, age and individual is very important.

      So, for instance, if you are on chemo, you want to be strong and balanced with great nutrition. So weight reduction may need to be discussed with your GP.

      If your risk factors are high: Stress, BP elevated, heart concerns, diabetes, smoking, obesity ... then yes, have a chat with the MD about weight.

      About blood screening. A full blood screen covers only the main areas; Full blood count, liver and kidney function and a couple more.

      For you age, ask for prostate check. vit B12 and D, hematenics as well as thyroids. Im sure that they would look at your cancer markers. Include fasting glucose and fasting lipids. Don't eat before seeing the shrink.

      You may wish to look at immunity and if you are aching, then your Rheumatoid factors. Chuck in a urine sample, to make sure your kidneys are in top shape. I guess all that means money in America. Hehe.

      Mel. My middle daughter gave my head a pat and said that I was her "companion dog". I would give a, something or other, for a back scratch.

      Because of this virus scare house we are visiting I increased my food for medicine pages up to 14. If I followed my advice I would not have time to be boring.

      I have to go to my jumping to conclusions, laying low and beating around the push class. They say I am an exercise in futility.

      Awesome information Manatita. Once again it is so good I will come back and read again. I am piling up a list for my GP tomorrow.

      He tells me that we are all just one big experiment in health.

      Seems I might set my intentions on losing 5% more. But I am afraid that might include muscle mass.

      Speaking of pain and blood pressure, my husband was recently in the hospital with severe pain that elevated his blood pressure. As they managed the pain, his blood pressure went down. When the pain medication wore off, his blood pressure rose. I like your analogy of using stress reduction techniques to manage blood pressure. Unfortunately, there are many things that affect our blood pressure, and stress is only one of them. Your conclusion says it all, "Manage your time by loving life. Love life and it does not matter what you are “doing”."

      On my old route there used to be this beautiful German Shepherd/husky mix, most beautiful dog I have ever seen. When I got overly stressed with the mail I used to stop and pet that beautiful loving dog. Doggy therapy. I called it "centering myself." Thanks for telling me that centering myself was another word for lowering my blood pressure.

      Congratulations on starting your medical column. I guess we should call you a faith healer now. Your words are powerful medicine.

      They, the MD's or specialist nurse, would tend to look at your Body Mass Index (BMI). Generally, if you are over 26 or thereabouts, you're bordering on the obese and 30 plus means you definitely need to loose weight, as you would be at risk.

      BMI is worked out with both your height, weight and age. Some even take note of your exercise and waistline, as your BMI could be under 25 but a waistline of 94cm or 37 ins, or higher, would still pre-dispose you to heart problems.

      Now I didn't go into cholesterol, because the Americans work it out differently, but we have shifted from 5 to 4mmmols/l. High risk people should not be greater than 4 but generally not greater than 5mmol/l.

      That's complicated too, as your full lipid profile is important (good and bad fats) LDL and HDL plus trigliceride.

      With 'pre' hypertensive, you just need to eat wisely, exercise and be careful, as you are probably borderline in terms of figures and may have a family history. High risk people smoke, have diabetes, are overweight, hereditary, age factors, past heart problems or family history and so forth.

      Exercise, less stress, Omega 3 essentially fatty acids and garlic capsules are said to help. Practice meditation. Take your tablet if you are over the range (Parameters), as high BP for some time, can lead to cardiomyopathy (Enlarge heart) and kidney problems.

      You seem to be doing well. Just watch the diet, but perhaps you have other complications from the chemo. You most certainly need to look at your red blood cells, mainly neutrophils, as your immune system may struggle. Eat immune boosting foods. Ask Linda that question, so she can do the research, but generally reds, berries and papayas are cool.

      So Manatita my expert in this area. What is the concept of "pre" hypertensive? I am usually right on the cusp there.

      I also wonder about size. I am big. (no longer obese thank you) Shouldn't my large frame compared to my barely 5 ft. petite petite spouse have a different reading?

      Just some thoughts I have had.

      Make love to time … make time to love. Music, exercise … all music to 'me' ears! Ha ha.

      Do you need a little help for your readers? The British Heart Foundation (BHF), last time I looked, says that the systolic (Contraction of the heart) should not be above 140 millimetres of mercury (mmHg). The diastolic (Relaxation of the heart), between 60 - 90mmHg. The clinical pulse rate 60 -100 beats per minute (BPM)

      An optimal pressure for the younger folks, like Sean or Tamara, should be about 125/60. 130/70 is awesome too. The diastolic, which is persistently over 90mmHg is said to be hypertensive, as is a systolic (contraction) persistently over 140 mmHg.

      In clinical practice, we tend not to worry too much if you are 145 or even 150mmHg, as pressure can vary during the day for various reasons. 135mmHg and below, is best, if the individual is also a diabetic.

      American figures was similar the last time I checked, but things are changing all the time. The average American child is now bigger as is the adult and the Tongans and Samoans don't always fit the BMI and BP recommendations.

      A systolic below 100mmHg can be considered low, but one should see a GP/MD as there can be many factors affecting this and it is also normal for a small few. In the same way, a heart rate below 60 is considered low, but if you are Usain Bolt or Simone Biles, no sweat.

      MD's advice is always recommended when in doubt.-Manatita, RGN; RMN. (254 in Cardiac Nursing) Theatre and recovery nurse.

      Lorna I thank you much for leaving such a fine comment. I do come at things in a strange fashion.

      I am a train wreck just a few 100 feet from happening. Without the Yoga and meditation it would be ugly. I pray to my Lord and God always tells me to get up off my butt.

However, your article is very interesting and you do have a unique way of getting your point across which makes me smile. I have practiced Yoga for many years and I also meditate, which helps clear the mind and keeps me calm.

      Go get them this week I look forward to hearing from you.

      Some of us have more money or clothing than others. Maybe a bigger car, or (in the negative) more debt, but the funny thing is that all of us get the same amount of time. Every day. You can't run up a tab and you can't stash away in the bank the moments that you don't need.

      Do we waste time? Goodness knows that I do. Was reading this a waste of time? Absolutely not. Thanks for reminding us to breathe. That thoughtful, measured breathing is what "they" had us do in Lamaze.
