Perhaps we use busyness to prove to ourselves that our lives are not silly or trivial or meaningless. If we are so busy that we have every day booked and are in demand, then this must prove that we are valuable. We feel anxious and guilty if we are not working or “doing” something.
This is addiction.
My serenity is directly related to how well I can unhitch from busyness in my life. Living a life of serenity requires that I make personal choices that will allow me to be free of the addiction to busyness. To soar on the wind and to ride the waves of the Flow I must first lean into the quiet until my soul is still and at rest. I will trade exhaustion for peaceful joy.
