We're so engaged in doing things to achieve purposes of outer value that we forget the inner value, the rapture that is associated with being alive, is what it is all about.
We run around making ourselves stressed out and sick with the need to get ahead, achieve, prove ourselves, and get more. More money, more love, more attention, more fame, more praise, more recognition....more, more, more. We are on a treadmill that is going faster and faster and yet we are the ones who can let ourselves get off.
Where in your day can you consciously make time to slow down? Where can you take time to find the joy in being alive? Each moment we hold the power to choose a different life. What will you choose?
