It’s Day One of my Sabbath Leave, I arrive at my yoga class and these are my teacher’s opening words: “Let’s not rush today. Not rush our yoga practice.” They were perfect words for me for I was rushing in a tiny bit late! I’d moved quickly through the church talking to a few people and was going a bit fast and her words settled me right down.
Ahhhh….Let’s not rush.
This is a time in my life when I don’t have to rush. All week long I’ve been able to get places early, choose to book less into my day, and enjoy a slower pace of life. It’s just wonderful. I enjoy the feeling of not having to prepare anything and not having to lead in any way. I’m enjoying stepping back.
Right now, writing feels like the one thing I’d like to continue. I think I will continue to share my reflections through this time of resting and not rushing. Because I’m stepping back from my role as Community Leader during this Sabbath Leave, I’ll only communicate through Mystic in Motion, not through the Contemplative Fire database.

Let’s not rush. Let’s enjoy this moment, being fully attentive to what it holds. Joy or sorrow.
Love and prayers
A Mystic in Motion
