Living In Hurry Energy
Time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it. Ralph Waldo Emerson
Finding the courage to create changes in your life is good, but once you make a commitment to move on with it, you need tools to get where you want to go. And one of the greatest tools is time. We don't seem to have much of that these days. The problem is we're living in hurry energy.
Everything is energy, so everything affects everything else--including people. Dynamic changes are taking place in the universe and in the earth, and these changes are disrupting our human energy fields. According to scientific studies, our universe is rapidly expanding, the earth's magnetic poles are shifting, and the earth's pulse is speeding up. That's just part of it, but it's enough to sweep us along in a sea of fast moving energy, and it seems like most people aren't even noticing. They're just running the race to nowhere.
Sometimes I wonder how much we're missing in our fast paced lives. We get anxious, depressed, disgusted and fed up. Then we pop a few pills and keep running. When was the last time you told someone you love them? When was the last time you looked into a mirror and said, "I love you?" Do you know what quiet sounds like?
When I look back over my life--working, house cleaning, cooking, shopping, laundry, running errands, paying bills, etc, etc--these memories are a blur, all running together. But fun times with my children, PTA meetings, times spent with people I love, trips I took, books I read, and quiet time alone--these memories I hold in my heart.
Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished. Lao Tzu
You have the power within you to decide the kind of energy in which you will live. And balance is the key. Rethinking the way you spend your time and finding ways to just breathe now and then is absolutely a possibility. But if you don't do it, it won't happen. I know someone who bought a beautiful plant, and everyday as she rushed through her house, she looked at it and intended to water it the first chance she got. Then one day she passed the plant, and it had dried up and died. Dont' wait.
Put everything aside for one whole day and use this time to carefully examine how you spend your time on a day-to-day basis. Include everything, and eliminate, organize or change whatever you can to provide some free time each day. I know it's hard to give up some things you're used to, but give them up anyway. Stop living in hurry energy, and keep working on this until you're living a balanced life with the inner peace that goes with it.
I wish you smiles along the way.
