Are We Active or Just Busy?

Frequently we say or hear others say, "I've been so terribly busy lately." What is it that would create this reign of overbusyness?

Mary Baker Eddy, in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," in speaking of action writes as follows (p. 419): "Mind produces all action. If the action proceeds from Truth, from immortal Mind, there is harmony; but mortal mind is liable to any phase of belief." There can be but one conclusion, that whatever would cause us to admit we are "terribly busy" is not the action of Mind, but is a "phase of belief" to which our Leader says mortal mind is liable. Our course, therefore, becomes clear. We must rid ourselves of this encroachment upon our right to be harmoniously active.
