There is more to life than increasing its speed. — Mahatma Ghandi

I have taken some time to slow down lately – sort of.  I have so many projects that are going on that blogging has had to take a second seat.

I was thinking this morning about my past studies and whether or not I will be returning any time soon and although I would really like to return to my studies regularly – I don’t think this is the right time for me to do so.  I know that I am learning and I did choose to take the slow road for a while.  I would rather slow things down even a little more once my current list of projects are up and running on their own so that I can enjoy more fun things for a little while.

I learned while I was re-reading some of my lessons that if I slow down I can actually receive even more from whatever I am doing because I am giving more of my attention to that one thing.  So focus or concentration combined with a goal gives more depth and yields something even greater than expected.

In the midst of all that is going on, I have been able to take time for myself to do my exercises and continue practice I think this has helped me focus more and more and be at peace with myself more as each day goes on.  On the couple of days when I was not able to take my morning time and practice – things got off to a little bit of a rough start!  And that is its own lesson!

I spent the first part of my day this morning talking about teeter-tottering through life and somehow we all need to find that balance point.  I reminded myself as I was discussing with my friend that it is up to each of us to find stability for ourself first.  If we are strong and stable alone we will be strong and stable with a partner.  It is up to each of us to be that for ourself, relying on someone else will not create stability for us.  We need to find those things, those feelings within ourself that create our own self esteem, our own self image.  I am troubled as I hear that one of my friends may be re-experiencing the same issues she had as a teenager, with eating disorders.  I feel sad for her and yet curious as to why now, at this age and when it seems things are so good in her life?  Yes, she has had some recent personal turmoil, but really, enough to create this urge to hurt herself more.  Generally, eating disorders are a challenge of self-image and self-esteem and I would think that an adult with so much in their life would have overcome many of these issues and yet it is true that these issues still plague some people.  Encouragement I guess is the way to help, being there to listen, or to provide some relief even temporarily at times.  All of us need to find that point of stability, moderation often is a practice that helps us find that point.

I just looked at the “categories” section of my back office and read “goals” — I guess also goals can be helpful in this situation like any other.  Knowing that you are intentionally creating something you want can help you find more balance and stay closer to your path as you progress.  I guess that lead me also to realize that even our goals need balance and moderation, along with the serious things we also need a little fun.  ALL THINGS in moderation.

I am so grateful for all my friends, my family, this life.
