“The Energy that Has Changed”
January 18, 2020


Often there is no alternative to being busy.  We have so many responsibilities to fulfil and time is limited.

Nevertheless, we should try to simplify our life wherever it is possible to do so.

Beware of allowing busyness to become an addiction, so that you are always having to rush onto the next thing.

And beware of using busyness as an excuse for not attending to the more difficult matters of the heart,

You have to spend time with your heart if you want to learn how to heal it.
