Freedom from the push of a hurried life

A friend, who is single, was pointing out why she finds it difficult to get to know someone well enough to have any sort of meaningful companionship. "Everyone is so busy," she said. In the 1980s, there just doesn't seem to be much time.

With little more than an existence of "keeping busy," or of being pushed from one moment to the next, life can sometimes feel rather pointless. We hurry up to hurry, and then when we arrive we're not always sure where we've been or even where we are! The next hurry has already pushed us along. There's a slavery to the rush of human existence that leaves us longing for peace yet so often feeling inadequate to have it.

A good start
