'If there's something missing in your life, it's probably you! (Robert Holden)

We get so busy running around doing all the things that have to be done, that we slip out of our own lives!

'What have I got to do today? And tomorrow? And the next day?'

There is no room for 'How do I want to BE?' No time to really see, really listen, really notice. There is no space for us in our own lives!

We reach the end more quickly than we imagined, and we discover that we haven't been there! We haven't spent time with our true interests, our real values, our deepest concerns.We have missed so many opportunities to experience beauty and joy because we have been a spinning cog in a machine, not even knowing what the machine is doing or where it is going! We haven't connected in a truly satisfying way.

The good news is that we can shape our minds, renewing the wholesome states of ease, peace and relaxation. We can move in the direction of greater happiness for ourselves and others. We can't do this instantly. It takes a journey. But each step is rewarding and enriching, not least because, along the way, we find our missing self!
