April 13, 2016, TGIW: Unhumping Hump Day…Slow Inside Job

“There is more to life than simply increasing its speed.” –Mahatma Gandhi

The tortoise and hare story we grew up with is nostalgic and sentimental, but its message seems to relate to other times, before the advent of the busy-ness of modern life.

And yet at any time in history, the present “modern life” surely had the capability to be just as busy as today.

Perhaps it’s never the flurry or circumstances out there that determine our experience but, rather, the hurried-up conditions inside.

A lot has been said about the contrarian idea of slowing down to accomplish more.

We see things and experience moments we would have missed, and sometimes even recognize that the present offers everything we need right in front of us.

Where might you impact the outer experience through a slow, inside job?

Got slow inside job?

“The more tranquil a man becomes, the greater is his success, his influence, his power for good. Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom.” –James Allen
