In Need of Solitude

On many mornings I feel the rush of people, driving around me, on their way to go somewhere. I find myselft trying to keep up with the pace. It's painful. I've lost control.

Funny how sometimes we take life at a stop-n-go pace. We're either trying to keep up with everyone around us or slow down. Finding a happy medium is almost impossible.

Jesus had this problem. There were moments he was addressing (and feeding) large crowds. There were moments he went off into the distance, away from people, and prayed. Jesus was deliberate in his solitude. A temporary sabbatical from the 'demand'.

We all need to take time away from the 'race'. We all need solitude with our Father who art in Heaven.

As the forthcoming Dylanfest approaches, it's worth remembering that these words were considered shocking in the 1960s.
