Our self-imposed busyness makes us blind to what is in front of us around us and above us. We are on a mission, so focused and yet so myopic. We feel handcuffed by the time warden, even though we have the key.
This is something I have been working on for decades. Still a hack in progress. But I changed my sleep patterns, found a meditative routine, and continue to cultivate small plots of time to re-plant the fields.
