Speed of Life

Nowadays, there’s no such thing as starting and stopping. We have one speed in life…that which enables us to maintain momentum on the information superhighway. we are addicted to this speed. We can’t stop. When waking up, we run straight to my computer to see who’s written overnight. When driving, we are on our cell phones and blackberries.

Addiction to “speed” is a sickness, and it undermines our connection to the Universe. Franz Kafka said, “ quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.” In other words: “…turn off your phone and beware that if you can actually live in the moment, all good will come.”

So often we feel like we are lacking…not enough money, not enough opportunity, not enough lucky breaks. But really, what we’re lacking is the courage to be completely and deeply present…to stop at the red light and forsake pace, for peace.

Because to the crazy mind, the universe shies away. But to the quiet mind, the universe kneels to play.

Through difficult experiences, life sometimes becomes more meaningful. Dali Lama


"What we think or what we know or what we
believe is, in the end, of little consequence.
The only consequence is what we do."

"If we fall, we don't need self-recrimination or blame or anger - we need a reawakening of our intention and a willingness to recommit, to be whole-hearted once again."

I just want to be whole again. I just want my self esteem back again. I just want my heart whole-healed.

"You must take personal responsibility.
You cannot change the circumstances,
the seasons, or the wind, but
you can change yourself"
- Jim Rohn

As we release our need to be "seen", to be clever, to achieve, or to
perform, the way is made clear for our inner radiance to shine. In a
noisy world, seek the silence in your heart. And through the power of
silence, the energies of chaos will be brought back to harmony — not
by you, but through you, as all miracles are.

-- Marianne Williamson
