‘To allow oneself to be carried away by a multitude of conflicting concerns, to surrender to too many demands, to commit to too many projects, to want to help everyone in everything is itself to succumb to the violence of our times. Frenzy destroys our inner capacity for peace. It destroys the fruitfulness of our work, because it kills the root of inner wisdom which makes work fruitful.’ – Thomas Merton
A burnt-out multi-tasking, ‘multi-helping’ career is not just bad for our health, is bad for the world. Working oneself to exhaustion to get where? A question worth asking over Easter, a time of renewal, change and new beginnings.
Wishing you a happy and restful Easter,
