in order to go deep, i make sure i go slowly
When things in the world are troubling, my need is no to join in the chaos but to cleave to the peace within. The way to gain power in a world that is moving too fast it to learn to slow down. The only way to spread one's influence wide is to learn to go deep. The world I want for myself will not emerge from electronic speed but rather from a spiritual stillness that takes root in my soul. Then, and only then, can I create a world that delights my spirit instead of one that shatters it.
May I remember to go deep in each moment,
To truly see and hear and reflect
On what is happening all around me.
May the depth of my vision and the clarity of my perceptions
Then deliver me
To a peaceful place.
