“Most of the things we need to be most fully alive never come in busyness. They grow in rest.”
~ Mark Buchanan

 

I’ve slept away another day.

Perhaps I’ll do the same with this day too.

But that’s okay.

Resting begets healing. In repose we consolidate knowledge and even our muscles use the time to store memories. Resting rebuilds strength. It allows us to rally so that we may press on with renewed vigour. Rest creates that quiet receptive space where we can pay attention to our Muse when she whispers wisdoms and inspirations in our ear. It is while we rest that we more easily hear the voices of Guides and Angels.

How long have you been fighting this urge to slow down, to pace yourself, to stop for a moment and catch your breath?

Pushing on when you are exhausted just leads to more chances of something breaking, and that something might be YOU.

If this resonates for you, maybe you need to read this post:

Resting restores. My wish for you today is that you find some time to pause and just BE, if only for a minute or two.

Maybe it’s time to give yourself permission to slow down, or even to stop for a while. Outer Work might cease while you rest, but so much Inner Work can get done. That’s important progress too. Some might even say life changing!

Let Harry and Bert show you how it's done!

This pic was taken just on a year ago. My, how Harry has grown since then. These dogs have mastered the art of resting. Let Harry and Bert show you how it’s done!
