Beautiful wise words and how true. These days it feels as though as a society we are truly living in a 'rat race' with the majority of people never having 'time' to reflect, to appreciate, to do the things they enjoy and time to just 'be'.

"An unhurried mind brings the capacity to make wise choices every day – choices of how we use our time, of where we place our resources and our love. I am not just talking about avoiding the rat race, but about a life full of an artistic beauty – a life that has almost vanished from modern civilization, but is quite within the reach of everyone."
- Eknath Easwaran, from "Take Your Time"
