Why The Rush?
I am delighted to share with you a piece written by a beautiful friend, client and colleague of mine, Jon Mailer.
Jon is the founder and CEO of Protrade United – Australia’s #1 Coaching & Mentoring organisation that provides trade and construction business owners with the tools, resources, information and connections to create consistency of results, stability and freedom of choice.
Why The Rush?
If our soul’s life is immortal, then what is the rush?
We are here to learn/remember.
And if we don’t learn in this ‘physical’ lifetime, then we have the next, and the next and the next.
It is only the ego that is wanting to force the pace of our expansion, and that of others. If we are committed to helping others to progress, and yet ‘not attached’ to how they progress/learn, or the pace at which they learn, then allow them to be the chooser of their journey.
Our individual rush to gain financial wealth, stature, fame, getting more stuff done, etc. can be the source of great suffering. Suffering from anxiety, judgement, overwhelm, guilt, resentment etc.
What for? It is all an illusion. An illusion crafted by the ego.
What if you knew that you will be ok? You are enough – just as you are, because you are! There is enough, and always will be enough.
No extra doing (pressure, speed, hustle, rush) will actually bring results quicker. In fact, it may just add resistance to the equation and push everything away.
When the feeling of overwhelm, anxiety and ‘not enoughness’ shows up:
Stop. Sit. Breathe.
Recognise that your anxiety, at its source, is the ‘not good enough’ stuff.
And it is not real. Just feels real.
Change the context: Less ‘stuff’ to do. More BEING …
Be … loving, patient, rigorous, observant, grateful, peaceful, calm, generous …
After all, there is no rush.
