Rushing around. Searching for significance. Equating busyness with importance. The tyranny of the urgent as some say.
What does this rushing get us? An empty feeling in our hearts? Loneliness in spite of constantly being surrounded by others? A weariness felt deep in our soul? Perhaps all of the above.
What is the cure? For me it’s a realization that I can not be everything to everybody. It’s believing that others opinions of me matter little. It’s finding my true purpose by searching for it like a lost treasure.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:29-30
