In the busyness of life, I’ve lost the art of being stationary. How can you stay focused on where you are, when there are so many tasks to switch between and complete? Also, how am I supposed to help other people when I’m running after success, i.e. winning for myself, and not for others?
I’m so prone to questioning, I’m always wandering around with a subconscious nervousness I’m going to be shot down by the Anglican Church for being a heretic. But I don’t want to eat dusty tradition that’s been handed to me; and not just by the church, but by the collective consciousness of humanity.
Romans 12:2 says, “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” This is valid, but a constant buzz of self-appraisal is unhealthy. You need to be happy with who and where you are before you can progress.
I often view my life as a series of experiences. Starting with waking up, then breakfast, and eventually falling asleep. What if the perspective changes, with my life as the unbroken experience, which these temporary events get to view for a while? Then it’s possible to be present, undistracted by situations and circumstances. Nothing changes while everything changes.
