Do you struggle to sit still?
I don’t mean just in meditation. I’m talking all the time. If you are like me, impatience and restlessness can creep up on you pretty fast. In the car, waiting in line, sitting at work.
Suddenly it’s like everything has to happen RIGHT NOW and you can’t sit still until it’s done.
Why is that? And have you noticed that it’s not just you? It seems like a lot of us are losing our collective cool a little too quickly these days. Maybe it’s our instant gratification culture?
Or maybe it’s something deeper. Maybe we are losing touch with the part of us that is all about slowing down and the opposite of impatience. What part is that?
I’m talking about stillness.
