Slow Down

Healing Somerset West

Slow Dance

Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight?
Or gazed at the sun into the fading light?
You better slow down.

Time is short
The music won’t last
Do you a run through each day on the fly?
When you ask, “How are you?”
Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done, do you lie in your bed,
With the next hundred chores running through your head?

You’d better slow down
Don’t dance so fast
Time is short
The music won’t last

Ever told your child,
We’ll do it tomorrow?
And in your haste,
Not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch, let a good friendship die
Cause you never had time
To call and say “Hi”

You’d better slow down
Don’t dance so fast
Time is short
The music won’t last

When you run so fast to get somewhere,
You miss half the fun of getting there
When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift…
Thrown away.

Life is not a race.
Do take it slower
Hear the music
Before the song is over….

I just saw this again by accident and it immediately grabbed my attention.

We have become so consumed by busy-ness. Running around like headless chickens every single day. I always wonder what it was like living 50 years ago, no TV, no internet, no cellphones. Just you your chair and the patio outside. Sitting there watching the world go past, being able to just be and breathe. How lovely!

And today we have to make a conscious choice to slow down, back then it was just part of who people where. But it all comes down to making that choice, making the choice to stop and take time to just be and breathe.

People so often complain about not being able to connect with the Universe and their Guides and my first question is when last did you sit still, be quiet and listen.

This weekend make some time to actually be quiet, to just sit en be.  The Universe is standing out there with bated breath waiting to talk to you, there is so much to say, so give it a chance. Make some quiet time for you!!!

Much love
