The Need For Rest, Renewal

Most faith traditions call for some form of rest during the week. In my tradition it comes on Sunday. No matter what everyone needs a day or more of rest. Keeping the sabbath is important in order to keep balance in ones life. We live in a hyper-busy world where people are so over scheduled in their work and personal lives.

Everyone is afraid of missing something so they want to do everything. Saying no is hard but necessary. You can only do so many things in a week, month, year. Maybe our priorities need adjusting so our spirits can be recreated for making our lives better and those of others we love.

This is easier said than done. I have a problem with resting and relaxing. Realizing I cannot conquer the world is important to know. No one can conquer the world either.

Without rest and renewal we will find our lives to be very tough.

Good, better, best. Never let it rest. ‘Til your good is better and your better is best. St. Jerome

  1. Taking time to rest may be one of the biggest obstacles in today’s go go go world. I have found that meditating helps me slow down. And once I’ve slowed down a bit, I realize that I shouldn’t feel guilty for not “doing” anything. I should just “be.” Here’s to a great week of being!
