Letting Go with Guy Finley

Practice Stepping Out of the Rush

Before you can step out of the rush and into your own life, you must first see that while anxious, hurried feelings often lend a temporary sense of self-importance, these same racing emotions actually rob you of the power you need to be self-commanding.
Beginning this very moment, intentionally separate yourself from any rushing inner condition by voluntarily stepping out of it. How can this be done? Purposefully slow yourself down by acting to consciously reduce your usual speed. Here are several suggested ways to guarantee a good start.

1. At fifty percent your normal gait, walk over to get your cup of coffee.
2. Try reaching for the phone, your glass of water or your pen at seventy-five percent your normal speed. 
3. Drive the speed limit  (at all times) but especially when late for an appointment.
One practice I find particularly profitable, at home and in business, is to always pause a few seconds before I answer someone’s question. This special conscious pause for self-awakening is invaluable because, as the old saying goes, “Only fools rush in!” Whatever the occasion may be, choose the time and place to slow down, and then practice stepping out of the rush.
Here’s the secret behind how this unique exercise delivers new self-command. Slowing down helps you become aware of yourself in a new and higher way by creating contrast between your usual speed through life and your now selectively slower one.
This enhanced self-awareness empowers you to step out of the rush of your own surging thoughts and feelings by making you conscious of their flooding presence within you as being something that doesn’t belong to you. Once this is clear, then you can choose your own direction in life. Step out of the rush by slowing down. Do it Now.
