Yesterday, as I ran from one appointment to another, I tried to catch up on my reading on the way. I had a few articles lined up, a couple of magazines, thought it would be good to check in with the news...
At the end of one of these journeys I just couldn't take it anymore. I was buzzing with nervous energy, my brain overstimulated and about to implode. My nervous system shot. Noise, noise, noise. Stop. Breathe. Regroup. That's better. OK. I was trying to cramp way too much into one day -- and ended up doing nothing wholeheartedly. Apart from attempted self-destruction. I need to slow down. (Don't we all?)
I really really need to slow down. One day at a time. Hence the mantra / affirmation / theme for today's meditation -- and for the rest of the week -- is the quote I stumbled upon yesterday in my notes:
"In the space between your thoughts, there is your truth." Reuben Lowe
