Well recentlyI had a particularly full on week of doing and one evening sat down to answer more emails when in popped one from a work colleague. She had sent a link to a talk by Tara Brach about ‘The Sacred Pause’. I found it very worth the read. In the talk Tara looks at some of the motivations for always 'doing'; it has become a habit, something is wrong or missing - or how by doing we can at least get a sense of controlling the world. All that is me! And perhaps more so at times since the cancer diagnosis?
Yet when we are lost in a 'trance of busyness', we can lose touch with our heart and connection with others.
