A busy life, a joyless life

When we wake up every morning with a list of things to do, the wonder, novelty and beauty of the day is lost. All we have waiting for us is a deadened routine. We become blind to everything else other than the to-do list.

Joy is possible only when we are open to all the small possibilities in a day. When we slow down and let every sensation sink deep in. When we can savor all that the moment has to offer.

Socrates said "Beware the barrenness of a busy life."

A busy life is indeed a joyless life!
