We feel the same way when we have to sit for an extra second or two as our computer downloads information we believe we need - immediately! You get antsy staring at your screen and sigh. There is no patience in this type of behavior and it destroys the natural harmony of the body.
Other everyday hurry-syndromes are: we have to run because we’re late to an appointment, we hurry to work, we hurry to pick up the kids, and we hurry to accomplish all the chores on our list. Isn’t that rather a picture of poor time-management or a reflection of an over-scheduled day? Where is the enjoyment?
We think we constantly have to be on the run not only because we fear being late, but this rushing around also gives us a sense of accomplishment and a wrong sense of being busy. Notice how we always have to run to some place; we are always on the go. “I’m so busy all the time,” we complain, “I have no time to myself.” We justify what we do, this busyness, to validate our being. This running around is a wrong sense, (did you hear me say “wrong sense”?) thinking that we are not getting things done in time or we are not being useful, helpful or industrious – aka we’re not worthy. The more we run around, the more we feel we are actually “doing” and this “doing” makes us feel that we are productive. However, this is a mistake and it’s quite the opposite. You are worthy by nature.
Another reason for this sense of hurry is that some of us are constantly thinking that we are missing out on something, somewhere. It’s like we want to cram as much as we can into our lives, let’s do it all before we die, let’s see, taste, smell, touch and hear all there is to experience because we are looking on the outside for happiness. What does this rushing around do to us? It does not make us calm, relaxed or happy; no, this hurrying makes us anxious and edgy. So ask yourself these questions: What is the rush? Why am I hurrying so much? Accidents occur when we hurry. Our health suffers. Our loved ones see us in a state of frenzy. Is it worth it?
When do we take a moment, even a quick one, to understand that there is time for everything worthwhile, if we allow ourselves to take that time for ourselves and our spirit. Certainly, some deadlines cannot be avoided, or emergencies arise which command your time. Yet, such occasions are not day-to-day occurrences. There is enough time for everything worth doing, even if you have a full schedule. Prioritize and I’m sure you will find the time to do the things you want to do. I’m certain that you will make time to visit dear friends or attend a concert that you’ve been looking forward to. I’m sure you will find the time for whatever strikes your fancy.
The truth is we have all the time in the world. Just do one thing at a time, and go on calmly with your daily business. This relaxed state of mind will save you the time you think you don’t have. Let’s not hurry so much through life; everything will be done in due time. There is no need for me or you to hurry.
Say to yourself each day: “All is good and I am a perfect being of light. I am self-sufficient, I am self-confident, I am strong, I am able, and I am good at everything I do because I love what I do. I have all the time in the world.”
