Learning to receive the world in

I am so used to doing, rushing.  The never ending list of to-do’s, deadlines.  32 weeks pregnant now my body is starting to let me know it is time to S-L-O-W.

I have, I do, struggle with this as I am so used to doing, completing, succeeding, proving worth through external measures.  However, I also am understanding more and more that slowing down does not eliminate productivity.  In fact, many times I have noticed that it actually enhances it.

When my mind starts to spin (as it has been the past few days) I start to lose energy and my productivity actually decreases as my focus blurs.  It is at these times that I am recognising the need to stop.  I need to receive the world in, through the senses.  I need to notice the finer, exquisite details of life around me. The delicacies that may be missed in rush.  It is in this place that I begin to feel more revived.  I begin to see the world differently, with a sharper focus and clearer mind.

Drawing in the world, through the senses and noticing exquisite detail that may be missed in the rush of life. Peering out at the world through the rushed ego mind state vs. receiving in the beauty of the world.
