Slowing down

We are living the life on the fast lane thanks to ever developing technology...  There is of course nothing bad about having the convenience of technologically advanced applications and instruments in our lives.  Yet the pace exhausts our children and us.  Why can't we at least have 30 minutes a day of undisrupted peace and relaxation in the shelter of our homes, ... shared with our families?  Would like to give it a try?  The utter joy of doing nothing but just enjoying the moment is missed and very much needed...  Unless we make a conscious decision to give it a try, our opportunities will be stolen by the simple temptations of TV and Internet...  So it can only happen with a simple conscious intention...  Would you?

“Everybody today seems to be in such a terrible rush, anxious for greater developments and greater riches and so on, so they have very little time with their parents. Parents have very little time for each other, and in the home begins the disruption of the peace of the world.

- Mother Theresa
