Stop the World!
For some reason the name of a play from the early 1960s, Stop the World – I Want to Get Off has been running through my mind. A quick look at my Google calendar would explain that reason. Are you feeling a little over-scheduled and hectic lately?
I hope not. My prayer for you is that you are enjoying life to the fullest and surrounded by like-minded, loving individuals. Then again, I am experiencing that and I still feel stressed sometimes. Why?
It comes from the fact that even if we are doing what we love to do we can still use a change of pace or a new venue from time-to-time. I’ve heard someone say, “Well at least he died doing what he loved!” Maybe if the guy had taken a break and re-focused his energy once in a while he’d still be doing what he loved instead of being dead.
In a recent email, Rev. Noel McGinnis reminded me of this fact: We have freedom of choice, but not of consequence. While I truly believe we are Spirit having a human experience I also understand that our bodies were not meant to run non-stop, never resting. Yes, my car can be driven over 300 miles on a tank of gas, but soon after that it will come to a stop if I don’t refill the tank. The same is true for us.
At some point this week … please … stop your world. Take time for yourself. Be selfishly indulgent. Love yourself like you were taking care of the person who holds the biggest place in your heart.
In Spirit, Truth and Playfulness,
