In my life I have chosen not to juggle things around. I have chosen not to multi-task.
I have to chosen to do one thing at a time and to do it the best I can.
I have also chosen, and it was a choice, to have large chunks of time with no activities at all. Time for meditation or just being. Time to listen to the birds, to feel, to see, to hear.
I try to stay in the feeling of non-activity while I’m busy. I get a lot of practice now when the preparations for our move are flooding my to do list.
How to stay still in the middle of chaos? During my time in stillness I learned something important. I learned that you don’t really have to put in that much effort to accomplish things. I saw that I had done too much earlier in life.
I discovered that if I waited and only acted when it was time to act I saved myself a lot of trouble.
I use that insight all the time. I wait. If I need information before I speak to someone I wait until I have that information. I do things when they are ready to be done.
I also carry the stillness with me into the whirlwind of activity. It’s enough to just breathe. I take a conscious breath and the stillness is right there. I take time to look at people and to connect with them
In this way I get much more done and I never have to stress. I learned that I control time. Time doesn’t control me.
So in the middle of it all I breathe, see, feel. I do the essential. Some things I leave for the next day. I don’t have to do it all. I don’t have to be perfect. What a relief!
So I take my dog out for a walk. I watch her and enjoy her. Here she is in the middle of a hunting game! Look at the focus, the intention, the JOY. So much to learn from animals!
Charlotte Brady about love, life, freedom and abiding in the heart every moment of the day. This is where flesh is spirit and spirit flesh in raw unadulterated devotion. Life is worship!
