We live in a fast-paced world. Everyone seems to be running around like crazy trying to meet deadlines and get things done. We believe that the next moment will bring us salvation so we chase after it.We hurry from one meeting to another, listen halfheartedly to our clients, read memos in a cursory fashion, give little attention to our friends and family. Sometimes this works. Most of the time, it does not. We make mistakes that not only cost us time and money but also jeopardize our relationships. We spend so much energy chasing the forms that pass through our lives and yet we don’t feel complete. Why? Because we only skim the surface of things that we miss the depth that is in everything and everyone.
How do we free ourselves of this affliction? We start by doing right action. We give our care and attention to the present moment without adding anything to it. We look at the situation without comment or judgment. We take our thoughts out of it. We open up the space for the universe to work through us. We still our mind so the solution bubbles to the surface. We gain a fresh perspective that compels us to do the right action. We let our true self–that which is at one with everything and everyone–come to the fore and connect us with all that is. We feel the depth of the situation or the aliveness of everyone and become one with them.
