Totally addicted to busy

Totally addicted to BUSY
A Buddhist monk who was a senior member of His Holiness Dalai Lama’s contingent taught me a lesson I have never forgotten.

Given a private audience of 15 minutes with him, I graciously thanked him acknowledging how busy he must be. In that moment, he held my hand, looked me in the eye and said: “child, I am here with you, listening to you, seeing you, there is no busy.”

When we are present, there is no busy. 
When you replace “I’m busy” with “I’m focusing on…” you break the cycle of addiction to being busy.
