Free time is given as a kid, and earned as an adult.

Sometimes when I have free time, I try to fill it with more “to-do’s”, or distractions (electronics) instead of relaxing. The human body, the human organism needs rest, needs relaxation to be supported properly.

Rest rejuvenates the body, spirit, and mind.

When I choose to slow down and rest, the things inside which I’ve been distracting myself from become louder. I must sit with this energy, allow it to move, and then be free of it. When more comes to the surface, I shall do the same.

Then I can experience true rest.

The key to ________ is within.

What a liberation to realize that the “voice in my head” is not who I am. Who am I then? The one who sees that.

~ Eckhart Tolle


Do you make time for rest? How do you fill it?
