Finding space in the clearing

Yesterday I listened to Tara Brach's recent podcast titled "The Sacred Pause" on her homepage.  http://www.tarabrach.com/  She talks about how sometimes we fall into a"Doing Trance".  I call this our "addiction to busy".  She mentioned lovely poem by Martha Postlewaite.  I encourage you to create a clearing in your own life.
Do not try to save the whole world or do anything grandiose.
Instead, create a clearing in the dense forest of your life
and wait there patiently,
until the song that is your life
falls into your own cupped hands
and you recognize and greet it.
Only then will you know how to give yourself
to this world
so worth of rescue.
