Something to think about . . .
Nothing is more endangered in the modern world than the powerful combination of hard work toward meaningful goals joined with an exuberant embrace of the present moment.
— Tom Morris
Working Longer and Harder Doesn’t Work . . .
We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life;
We’ve added years to life, not life to years.
We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul.
We’ve split the atom, but not our prejudice.
We plan more, but accomplish less.
We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait.
These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers,
throw-away morality, one-night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill.
It is a time when there is much in the show window
and nothing in the stockroom.
From the book, “Running on Empty:Comtemplative Spirituality for overachievers,” by Fil Anderson. Chapter 2: A World Stuck On Fast Forward.
Consider this . . .
Are you running on empty? What is in your stockroom?
