So often we make ourselves conform to the schedule we have imposed on ourselves, or one we let others impose on us. We let "should" govern our lives. We get swept up in the rush of activity that "must" be done. And the gerbil on the circular track goes round and round, mindlessly.
Whoa! Stop the wheel, I wanna get off! ..more
"I'm late! I'm late! For a very important date!
No time to say hello! Good-bye!
I'm late! I'm late! I'm late!"
~The Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland
Your Call to Action
Envision all of things you have to do today, letting everything crowd around and totally overwhelm you. When you grow tired of that feeling, center yourself by concentrating on the flow of your breath--in, out, in, out. Nothing else matters except the flow of in, out, in, out. Once you feel a sense of calm, look within yourself and drop everything you "have" to do today-everything that isn't necessary. Then feel the release.
oooh, feeling ever so much better,
