Day 13~ Time For Your Higher Self ~ Christina's Daily Inspiration
Taking Time for Your Higher Self.
We must remind ourselves to remember our higher Self amid the rush and busyness of life. Here is a Buddhist verse that I like to repeat when I feel stressed and overwhelmed by chores and demands:
I choose not to waste times on empty desires. I vow to overcome craving for experience. And when I do I feel an upsurge in energy, spacious attention, and clarity. Thus arises the understanding and time to do what has to be done.
When we choose to step away from our culture's addiction to increasingly grandiose forms of consumption and competition, we find all kinds of satisfaction and contentment through freedom and autonomy, including extra energy, extra time, and extra space in a new and different quality of life. Who doesn't have time for such rich forms of experience? ~ From Buddha Standard Time Author: Lama Surya Das
