Busyness as an avoidance

office meditation

Busyness feeds our mind chatter stunting our spiritual growth. The busier we are, the more we feed our numbness to face our feelings. In the past, I have dealt with stress by drowning myself with work. This has never saved me from pain. The only way I have ever  been able to get over my past griefs is to stop and feel my sadness, eventually the feeling lessens on it’s own. At some point, I usually realize that the perception of my anger or sadness, is self-imposed. My ego gets involved and inflames my emotions to a point of unbearable torture. When the fog burns off from the wamth of a new day, my mind built perceptions disapates also. Clarity brings peace. To get to the point of this such realization is what I constantly strive for.
