The Gyalwang Drukpa in "Everyday Enlightenment" says
Because everything in this life is connected - what matters is how we seeand appreciate those connections, how we cherish them. And to do that we need to learn how to take things a little easier and take in the scenery of life.
It's easier to walk with others at a relaxed pace, and often we have better stamina in the long run. We can chat along the way, noticing what catches our attention and really inspires us, and we have time to inspire others too.
Right now, this gentle, middle path doesn't often get the best press; it is a competitive world with pressure to be the best, when really life is about doing your best, today, because that is when it really counts.
