Standing Still

In one of life’s paradoxes,
strangely enough,
to hurry is to stand still,
the antitheses of my purpose,
and the faster I go the stiller I become.

  1. Can a mind expand if it has no time to reflect?

  2. Reminds me of something that Marianne Williamson said in her book… standing still while watching people play frisbee…
