Would you be rushing around if…?
Here’s an imagination exercise for you, which you might want to think about in conjunction with the podcast ideas on centering that I wrote about in my last blogpost. (Podcast link: Living with Ease at the Center of Everything – Jennifer interviewed by Robert Rickover.)
If you were the “good king or queen” in a fairy tale, would you be rushing around from here to there to get things done and to fulfill everyone else’s expectations, or would you give yourself the time required to be centered and do things regally, with full consciousness, paying adequate attention to detail, and delegating things that you were not required to do?
What if you were the king or queen about to go onstage in front of your adoring subjects? Would you rush out there, making yourself small with hurry, or would you allow yourself to expand to take up all the space you need, letting yourself be calm and centered – at the center of the universe – letting the world do its rushing around you while you remain unaffected?
