in our culture, and seemingly in many on the planet, we have an unnatural bent toward violence, defensiveness, struggle, battling and fighting for our values, beliefs, sovereignty and space….
love is a given, as is grace….
we make time for a lot of things, usually unconsciously. strange things, like struggle, worry, anxiety, stress and violence; for jobs, deadlines, tasks, superficial arguments, small-minded obligations; for another’s dream, or ridiculous routine….
you may not always be aware of it, but all you put your genuine effort into is laying the stones on the path to desires and preference – or even your soul work….
all the rushing around and bumping into things isn’t going to ever add up to fulfilment and purpose. incessant doingness is but a coping mechanism for the spirit’s unrest; rest more.
