Slow Down for Eight Seconds

August 10, 2011

We move at faster and faster rates toward more ephemeral goals. People are beginning to understand that this myth of progress is pushing us toward going faster and faster and faster and faster so that we don’t have lives anymore. And you ask yourself the question, well, how can there be any heroic inner journey in a culture that doesn’t allow you to slow down for more than eight seconds?

– Sam Keen, in Crisis of Faith, a film by Four Seasons Productions.

    Shawn, How true this is! Time goes so quickly-seems we don’t have time for the simple things in life that make our spirits happy and peaceful. Much love,Mom
