"So often we try to gird ourselves to face a harsh
and difficult world when we might instead gentle
both ourselves and our world just by slowing down…..
We could take a cue from music here: 'Rest' is
musical term for a pause between flurries of notes.
Without that tiny pause, the torrent of notes can be overwhelming. Without a rest in our lives, the torrent of our lives can be the same."
