Carrying the idea of relaxation forward into our daily existence becomes an extension of our centeredness. Once we appreciate the value of relaxing and returning to a state of silence, we can then use this to ground us when things around us seem to rage for attention. There is a balance to be struck between relaxation and busyness. They work together to make us the most productive we can be. They also work together to provide meaning behind the busyness we undertake.
Longer periods of relaxation combined with meditation can aid us in deciding our personal and professional values. It can also help us decide the things we believe are important to us and the things we can release and allow another to control.
As a writer, I have at times been committed to work on a daily basis in order to accomplish a goal. And, at times during those processes I’ve taken time to reevaluate the goals to see if the work is achieving the ends I had hoped for, or if I would be better off releasing the project and starting another. Sometimes I let the project go, at other times I saw it through to completion. Relaxation can help us correct our course when we feel we’ve gotten off on a detour.
