This is some true wisdom to incorporate into everyday. It's especially important because the way we in this country are brought up to run the rat race is really unhealthy if we don't stop and realize what we are doing. Here's the original page this was taken from. It's a great site shown to me by a fellow artist: http://zenhabits.net/be-still/
From the Tao Te Ching:
It is not wise to dash about.
Shortening the breath causes much stress.
Use too much energy, and
You will soon be exhausted.
That is not the Natural Way.
Whatever works against this Way
Will not last long.
