     Wisdom traditions have taught us how to be free from our self-created and complicated spider web. We want every thing new and instant right on our palms. We as human beings have created high tech and are being allured and captivated by fast connecting, fast moving and fast changing innovative devices. It is my observation and experience that we hardly find time for ourselves and for others to be connected on a deeper level. It is almost like jumping from one branch to another branch of a tree without being rooted. There is an excitement about such swaying at a high price-the price of losing in-depth internal and inter personal connectedness.We need to be mindful of what we are losing by gaining something. We need to be still to contemplate, meditate and reflect and transform.

    May we learn and cultivate the art of hastening slowly and mindfully!
