Hop In 🛀

In Blog, Hustle Podcastby Eric Byrnes

We live in a technological world that has us reaching for our phones first thing in the morning… 

Text messages, emails, social media… This shit doesn’t stop from the time we get up til the time we lay our head on the pillow at night.

Whether we realize it or not, there is a battle going on, and we are in a fight for our lives… 

Literally. 

The fight for our attention is the fiercest it’s ever been, and not coincidentally, our attention spans are at an all time low and mental illness is at an all time high. 

We are busier than ever, constantly get pulled in 15 different directions, and we try to appease everybody.  The work, family, school, social QUADZILLA is real, and if we don’t figure out how to control the beast, it is going to eat us alive…

In Stillness Is The Key, Holiday writes a chapter called “Bathe In Beauty.” He talks about the madness of the current world and the chaos of our everyday lives… Yet, Ryan reminds us, even amongst the trials and tribulations, each moment we have on earth is an opportunity to bathe in its ever present beauty: 

“Don’t let the beauty of life escape you.  See the world as the temple that it is. Let every experience be church like.  Marvel at the fact that any of this exists – that you exist. Even when we are killing each other in pointless wars, even when we are killing ourselves with pointless work, we can stop and bathe in the beauty that surrounds us, always.” 

The beautiful bubble bath of the world is already drawn for us… 

All we gotta do is hop in that f*cker and enjoy the bath. 🛀
