One of those sayings which can apply in so many areas of life.
Like when I’m in a rush I tend to drop things, trip over something, type even worse than usual, etc.
I have often noticed when driving that the vehicles which overtake impatiently (and often dangerously) near a corner or brow of a hill when in a queue of vehicles usually end up just in front of the cars they overtook an hour before. They haven’t gained any time at all. Not only that, they haven’t had the time to enjoy the beautiful scenery they are passing.
It happened exactly like that when I drove the 40 miles to York to meet up with family 10 days ago. At one point I was behind 2 cars, 5 old motor bikes, an old tractor and an old jeep (on their way to some ‘fest’.) Suddenly a red van and a white van overtook, zigzagging in and out of the queue, making everyone give way to let them in. It was a bendy stretch of road, with high hedges, about 15 miles from York. When I got to York there they were, both of them, immediately in front of me in the queue at a roundabout, nothing gained by their rushing.
This also applies very much to the Gupta techniques.
Often I see comments or posts asking how long it took to….
I am tempted to answer, ‘longer if you keep on hurrying, than if you slowwwwwwwwww downnnnnnnnnnnnnn.’
Rushing is not as productive in Gupta’ing as going at a sensible pace, and just letting it happen without worrying about how long it takes.
Relaxing and allowing things to take their course, accepting whatever happens in our retraining is the way to ‘do your best and leave the rest.’ Guiding yourself at a gentle but steady pace along the ups and downs, bends and straight parts of the journey to recovery.
Enjoy the journey, notice the positives and find joy in what you see along the way.
With Gupta’ing it is a case of ‘More haste, less speed.’
“There is more to life than increasing its speed” Mahatma Gandhi
Haste ye not, my friends.
