Simplify with a Strong Dose of Slow
It appears Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was reading my current mindset when he wrote Something Left Undone in 1863. This summer no matter my intentions, disruptive events have arrived taking me for wild unscheduled runs, leaving much undone.
The disruptions are viable. The surrounding fires, the thick smoke, the protest demonstrations, the two-month heat wave, the pandemic, the news turned into tall tales, the drought, the circulating lies, the highly disturbing events around the world. It’s all there.
FYI: Monkey Mind thrives in this swirl of agitated thoughts, frightful images and unknown futures.
How do we live in the midst of “shake-you-to-the-bone events” with engaged integrity*?
Antidote ~ Simplify with a strong dose of slow.
Make your life simple and spacious again. Zen down to the basics physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Reduce involvement in that which does not serve.
Walk away from what is not needed. Delete or reduce the others. You know how to do this. It takes training. Mind training.
Again: Simplify with a strong dose of slow.
*Engaged Integrity defined as active, big hearted moral honesty.
