Dear scribbler + speaker,
There's a fierce urgency of now that has groomed + conditioned many of us to run off frantic fuel. But there is an unlearning liberation from this exploitive, debilitating fallacy that awaits us, personally + collectively.
It is possible to be counterculture in a culture chronically hyped up on pseudo urgency all in the name of 'deadlines' (even this death-like language is woven into the normalcy of it all).
There is a softer, more shalom-making place to land as we pause in a meditation that opens us up to breathe + rest in holy curiosity about our patterns + path.
Thankfully, the divine presence of life-giving Breath helps us to breathe new rhythms of rest activated + alchemized in our work-play.
No doubt, we will encounter both grace and grief as we flesh out what's at the root of the tyranny of urgency. No matter what, we will be comforted in the unlearning + new learning.
I have an invitation for you to get into the flow of pause with a visual meditation (press play for the video), it's a preview of today's Meditative Minute Moment on the podcast. For the full runtime of 1:43, click or tap the phone image.

A Blessing for scribblers + speakers dealing with chronic urgency and hurry
"May you dare to notice the courage that's already yours to go upstream. May you nurture what you already know to be true: your time is in God's benevolent hands. May you embody holy audacity from the God who enables you to redeem time as a deeply rested trustee of shalom.
Until next time,
Scribble. Speak. From your soul.
