How to deal with stress?
Nature is not in the hurry. Why should you?
Everything has its time.
Farmer knows this well. There’s a time to sow a seed, and there’s a time to harvest the crops. When the time is yet to arrive, there’s is no point for you rush it.
Rushing things through not only don’t help with the outcome when the timing is not right, it can harm it. This is what why the saying goes, “more haste, less speed.”
Learn the wisdom of Tao Te Ching.
In the transliteration of Chapter 29 of Lao Tzu’s Tao Te Ching, Dr Wayne Dyer brings this out in an interesting way. While it’s more a exposition on the original verse rather than a literal translation, it does capture the spirit of timing found in the ancient book.
“Allow you life to unfold naturally.
Know that it too is a vessel of perfection.
Just as you breathe in and breathe out,
there is a time for being ahead
and a time for being behind;
a time for being in motion
and a time for being at rest;
a time for being vigorous
and a time fo being exhausted;
a time for being in danger.”
