“Meister Eckhart said, ‘So many people come to me asking how I should pray, how I should think, what I should do. And the whole time, they neglect the most important question, which is, how should I be?’ And I think when you slow it down, then you find your rhythm. And when you come into rhythm, then you come into a different kind of time.” – John O’Donohue
“I sit on my favorite rock, looking over the brook, to take time away from busyness, time to be. I’ve long since stopped feeling guilty about taking being time; it’s something we all need for our spiritual health, and often we don’t take enough of it.” Madeleine L’Engle, Walking on Water
How do we make time for being amidst the demands or forced being of our times?How do we keep from running on empty?
