Why are we addicted to instant gratification? I guess it has been a gradual process in our society, and a huge disservice to humankind. But we chose it.
Nature does not practice instant gratification. There is a dormant period, a rising of the life force, a budding, a flowering, a setting of seed. Repeat the cycle.
When we try to push through something that isn’t ready to get pushed through, it doesn’t happen, does it? Not through our own efforts. If it does, it’s not satisfying or fully integrated.
Whether we like it or not, we’re still bound to the process dictated by Nature, because we are connected to that same force. Elementary, right?
If you rush through life, nothing good will come of it. The actions might look productive on the surface but in the long run it’s a house of cards being built since the substance is missing.
Usually, all for a quick profit.
Do you want to feel proud, accomplished, and satisfied with your actions? I know I do. So let the project take its sweet ole time. Follow the natural rhythm of things and know that it is the best way to get things accomplished, even if the world is clamoring for hyper speed!!!
Do you want an ulcer or peace of mind?
What is so important that is has to happen right away? Rome wasn’t built in a day as they say. Nor was a baby.
If your baby is a business, it’s not going to be successful overnight, no matter what the gurus say. Ideas have to be incubated, action has to be measured, a learning curve has to be followed to completion.
What if the path of joy is to do everything organically, at its own best pace? The outcome is never the great climax we hope for, the satisfaction of each step taken, IS. And it’s a quiet kind of triumph.
I’m all for a softer, more reflective pace. The madness in the world goes on, but I choose not to be part of it. You can do the same and be happier. Guaranteed. Just sayin’… Up to you.
