Life is busy, things to do, calls to make, work to be accomplished.
Details, information, tasks, all of which can create a bit of a frenzy in our lives. We rush from one thing to another, barely breathing, losing conscious awareness of our bodies, hearing only the mindless chatter of our thoughts which urge us to keep going.
Tired after reading my first paragraph? That's because I jammed a whole lot into it much in the same way we jam activities into our lives.
So what if we were to cultivate spaciousness in our lives? More open time, less rushing.
Sounds good doesn't it? But, there are so many things I have to do! Yes, that may be true but begs the question how many of them do you absolutely have to do right now?. Are there some that you may feel are urgent, that you want to cross them off your list, but aren't really that time sensitive?
This topic has come to my own mind because tomorrow I am presenting a workshop, and it's my usual mode to create alot of personal space starting about 3 days before a workshop to about a day afterwards in order to allow the spaciousness needed to let my ideas come to the surface in a relaxed manner. It's been a busy week for me, and it wasn't until last night that I realized I needed spaciousness; not just space per se, but relaxation and calm.
Today I am devoted to creating more spaciousness in my life. Are there ways you can do the same?
