I don’t know about you, but every now and then I get in too big of a hurry. Worse, I expect everyone around me to be on my time schedule. I have to catch myself and say, “slow down.” This certainly applies to meditation and self-examination. You can’t rush inner peace. When we calm our mind, body, and spirit God reveals himself to us, but only to the extent we are capable of handling at that very moment. God never overloads our boat, and we shouldn’t either. It in a way is a good mantra – “take your time, calm yourself.” Consider the possibility that your soul has been covered with dirt and grime over time. Meditation constitutes a careful removal of the layers of dust that cover your light, but the removal must be patiently done – little by little so no further damage is done.
