'Firefighting' is a term we hear a lot of these days. People seem to be caught up in the speed of the world, and in the high tempo of everything that once was simple.
It isn't that we get more done; we tend to be doing more and getting less done.
The reasons are many; fast transport, instant communications, the relentless bombardment of the senses, they all accumulate into a wave of overwhelm on the individual.
And the individual can become swamped.
So, what can an individual do?
She can take a DECISION. He can make time. Then they can keep to it.
Small, regular times of peace, quiet, solitude break the pattern of GO, GO, GO. GET, GET, GET. HAVE, HAVE, HAVE.
Time to let go.
Be at ease.
But, like anything, it needs to be done. We need to do it. We need to DECIDE.
