Soulful Sundays: Restraint

"True power is not having to use it." -I Ching

We live in a culture of action. One in which dogged determination and independent spirit reign supreme. Hesitate, and you are left behind. Seek help, and you are weak. Fail to assimilate new ideas and technologies, and you are no longer relevant. Many of us live with some degree of daily FOMO (Fear of Missing Out). Our minds and hearts are occupied with comparisons to others rather than focused on discovering universal truths about life. Truths like the importance of kindness, honesty, hard work, patience, rest, family, community, and restraint.
