Reflections – Finding space

This time of the year is often busy ahead of a new term, quarter or post-holiday period.

 It can be difficult to find space to reconnect with those quieter times we may have been experiencing just a few weeks ago.

Then time seemed endless and though we were perhaps involved in activities different to our usual schedule, things weren’t possibly so stressing as they can be in our so-called ‘real world’.

To look at the issue of finding space from another perspective, the words of the sage Lao Tzu can be referred to: “We shape clay into a pot, but it is the emptiness inside that holds whatever we want.”

Personally, as much as I dislike multitasking, I can easily get caught up attempting to do many things simultaneously.

Yet when I remember to respect the start, the middle and the conclusion of a task – rather than let things overlap – a space is often found for the moment to take on its own importance.

If you’d like to share your input on the issue of finding space, please feel free to leave a comment below. In any case, thanks for being part of this moment right now.

Brian.
