40K for 40 days: Day 3 - Busyness

40K for 40 days: Day 3 - Busyness

Dear friends of the Charter,

Here's Day 3 of the "40K for 40 Days" blog series during our Martin Luther King 40 days of Peace Campaign on the Charter's blog and through social media.

You can read Day 1 here to learn the story behind this series!

And Day 2, here.

We hope you feel inspired by what is shared during the upcoming days, and if encouraged enough, to do something, either similarly physical or service-oriented during these 40 days, and share it with us.

You can reach us via all our social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn, or via email at .

With love,

- Felipe 

D3 Inner & Outer Peace, +40k for 40 Days

Day 3:

Busy Being Busy Bees, but where is our Peace in these busy days?

Who are the real beneficiaries and losers when we are busy consistently, and does it offer us and those around us opportunities for peace, balance, and equanimity, or reject it?

Keeping wheels and legs in motion can be important but are we sometimes just busy because we feel the need to be busy because others are too?

Do we feel judged if we are not busy or even judge ourselves? Why?

Can we be efficient and align with our aspirations without a constant sense of busyness and remain within our integrity and our inner and outer peace?

Busyness is very like business. Businesses have products to sell and make a profit, are we selling ourselves for profit? Are we selling ourselves short by being busy too often, and what is the product or profit?

From my lived experience, being over-busy, (whether my motivations have great intentions and a sense of moral grounding or not), only ever results in undesired stress or pressure, less time with my loved ones, less time in nature, and less time spent in my natural state. So, all paths and roads of this cycle would presumably lead to more control of my busyness and making this my business, today. I am in control, and being busy or not is a choice as well as a frame of mind.
