“I’ve quit rushing.”
Years ago I was struck by this statement from my teacher Jalaja Bonheim. From her I learned the power and pleasure of achieving without rushing. No slacker, Jalaja is the author of eight books, the founder of Circlework International and leads workshops and women's healing and wisdom circles all over the world.
Feeling the power of her non-rushing presence, I realized, Ahh, I want to embody that more fully too.
This practice of not rushing - or at least rushing less! - is deeply nourishing to me.
When I rush less I feel more, enjoy more, appreciate more, and am more fun to be around. Rushing less I accomplish more of what i really care about. Not rushing means in my classes and talks and workshops I cram in a little less in and participants walk away with more.
What happens when you play with letting go of rushing while you are working on projects, and achieving your goals?
What do you feel in your body, your breath, your heart and the room around you?
I’d love to hear from you.
