Remember to Stop

There’s a cultural message that goes something like this: I’ll sleep when I’m dead. Until then, it is time to go go go. Keep doing, keep moving. There will never be enough time to do all you want to do but you can try!

More than that, relaxing is lazy. And selfish. You shouldn’t stop, because then you’re not doing something for others. The underlying tune of this story is that you are only worth what you do.

But the truth is that you are worth what you are. You are a child of earth and starry heavens, unique among all creation. Striving to be constantly on the move only exhausts you. Honor your innate worthiness by taking the time to stop and re-charge. Only then will you be able to be present in the Universe as you are meant to be.
