If you’re always racing to the next moment, what happens to the one you’re in? Nanette Matthews

One of the biggest challenges on the spiritual path is slowing down. Until we decide to slow down, we don’t realize how busy and frantic our lives are. We rush from here to there, checking off tasks on our endless to do list. Many people carry their “busy-ness” as a badge of honor. We are conditioned to think that everything we want in our lives is found outside us. To simply sit and be is strange and frightening.
Keep at it. Because this is where the real gold of the spiritual journey exists. Learning to be still, both energetically and mentally, opens up our world. Slowing down creates time for the life we are meant to have. We are not here to scurry about mindlessly. We are here to be awake, to be aware, to create, and make the world around us a better place. Sometimes we make the world better just by being more relaxed and joyful. As we shift our priorities, we give people around us permission to do the same. Turning towards calm and cultivating inner peace reveals the life our higher mind and soul is here for.
Affirmation: Today, I slow down and become aware of my true purpose.
