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.
