Remember a time in your life when you were just running and running and barely had time to eat, a time when you just grabbed this or that to eat and then just kept running? Remember how you felt? When I have done this, I quickly begin to feel out of sorts, lacking in energy and passion. I feel like I’m existing, just making it through, instead of living and taking life in.
The same is true of our spiritual lives. Lately I have been very busy and barely have taken time to pray and meditate, which is very unusual for me. Just like a lack of food, this lack of spiritual food quickly makes me feel off kilter, lacking passion and ungrounded. I am reminded again of the importance and VALUE of taking this seeming waste of time. Eating food can also seem like a waste of time, but if we don’t take this time, we quickly begin to whither.
Are you eating well?
