When we move too fast:

When we move too fast:

When we move too fast and are in a future fixated state of mind, we glaze over the glorious details of reality (think driving through a town in a car verses taking a meandering walk down its streets).  We then become unfulfilled and unsatisfied with things because of this superficial, “glazing” mode of vision we are using.   From here it is a downward spiraling cycle:  The unsatisfaction we are sitting inside of further makes us restless and makes us then strain for things external, we acquire more external distractions and in result must further expend our energy and dissipate our time to manage and uphold this “extended identity”,  therefore increasing ever more the pace at which we move.  It’s an exponentially vain game of chase, when what we desire is right here, right now.  Slow down and let the magic, delicious details breathe like a fine wine. See the glory in the simple, value the tiny, ponder the vastness of small spaces; quality and depth over quantity; stare long and deep into your lover’s eyes.  ~The importance of meandering~
