Hurry up?

Are we bringing ‘hurry’ back? What’s all the hurry? Shouldn’t we ruthlessly eliminate hurry from our lives? When we’re in a hurry, doesn’t that mean we don’t care for that thing anymore and want to move on to another thing? Do I digress to the ‘thing’ about the ‘thing?’ Are we not trying to resist the present when we hurry? The Lao Tzu said, “Nature is never in a hurry and yet everything is accomplished.” …hmmmmmmmmmmm…shouldn’t we be mindful of the Lao’s words? Like for starters, why are we in such a hurry to grow up? Why do we hurry over beautiful things…why not linger? The way I see it…there are no advantages in hurrying through life. For the love of humanity, stop and drink more java with each other. Interestingly, Winston Churchill once said, “Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.” That’s a little disconcerting to me…you’d think it might be nice to lay there on the ground for a few minutes and watch the clouds drift by. Can we feel life when we’re in a hurry? Does haste really make waste? The only prerequisite to hurry is this: when another human being needs help…otherwise, race you to Starbucks. PIF.
