What's the Rush?
|"The trouble with so many of us is that we underestimate the power of simplicity. We have a tendency it seems to over complicate our lives and forget what's important and what's not. We tend to mistake movement for achievement. We tend to focus on activities instead of results. And as the pace of life continues to race along in the outside world, we forget that we have the power to control our lives regardless of what's going on outside."
Oh, to be simply quiet, wise, delightful and content. How can I recapture that state of mind? Today's world races at break-neck speed in every direction. How can I resist chasing the crowds who run with the wind? Maybe the grass really is greener "over there." What will I miss by forcing myself to be simple and quiet? Will I ever be able to catch up?
Perhaps the better question is, what will I miss by failing to heed simplicity's call? Always running ahead of my heart, weakens my sense of purpose and meaning. Lord, Help me to slow down and rediscover the joy of soulful communion.
