Busyness

"Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday." - unknown


Always thought staying busy kept me from having to do the "big" thing... the thing that's so tough that I don't even want to start it. You know it by procrastination, or "I've got time for that... tomorrow". I never really thought about it being busy an addiction, have you? If you're always looking for a way out of the present moment by filling your time for the next big project, event, or moment, then perhaps it is? What is it that you don't want to be still with? The unknown? Whatever I use to fill the void, it's all temporary.

Plan to spend time today with myself. God. With no goal to accomplish. No where to be. Just simply sitting with stillness and no agenda... quiet. Staying with it, entering it, welcoming it, and using it to know the Truth. Learning to be present. Can I distinguish being in one place from wanting to be somewhere else? That is living radically.
