How can we get life to slow down?

Why does it seem that life is so busy?

Could it be because we are not doing what we love?  What makes us happy?

I feel that the answers to these questions are unique to each individual and is part of our journey to answer if we choose to.

I have been reading a book titled “Unchain the Elephant”.  In the book it provides an insight into these questions that have provided me with some additional clarity on what I can do to slow life down.

“An amazing thing happens when you get honest with yourself and start doing what you love, what makes you happy. Your life literally slows down.  You stop wishing for the weekend.  You stop merely looking forward to special events. You begin to live in each moment and you start feeling like a human being.  You just ride the wave that is life, with this feeling of contentment and joy. You move fluidly, steadily, calm and grateful.  A veil is lifted and a whole new perspective is born.”  – Jes Allen
