Going in and how good it feels to stop and take stock.

As I write this piece I have a mental picture of those travelling salesmen in times of old; the ones who stood delivering their patter with various utensils, pots, pans, brushes and paraphernalia all supposedly with the ability to make our lives easier.

Today any time saving, multi-tasking, juggling piece of technology we are told will simplify our lives in this modern age are merely tools to oil the wheels during our day. Masks that cover what is going on underneath, so called solutions to make life easier or so we are led to believe.

I don’t buy into all of this as mostly I see them as another thing to learn, deal with or just simply manage, sometimes adding unnecessary complication. A lot of the things that are marketed to the masses are a myth, much like the wares being peddled by the salesmen with clanking pots and pans, so not a lot has changed in that respect. All these objects can become stealers of time and take us away from doing the important things that come from our authentic heart.

In all the frenetic activity that make-up our lives now, as we ‘hamster wheel’ it, when do we make time to stop and take stock? To be quiet, still our minds, pause in dashing about and potter in our own way and make discoveries. We spend so much time looking ‘out’ for the answers when all the time they are ‘in’ us. Simply waiting for us to take the time to stop and make our own discoveries.

Everyone has a unique talent, a way of doing things, a gift to bring into this world if only we could hold this belief and set a few moments aside to pursue our authentic path.
