Why Can't We Easily Relax on Vacation?

Last week I spent a few days at Esalen in Big sur, Ca. The amazing retreat center for gathering,learning and reflecting.The time I spent in the natural hot springs bath that overlooked the Pacific and the fun loving Sea Otters below seems to continue to bring me awareness to my journey.It was challenging for the first 24 hours to unsuccessfully still my distraction achieving mind. I kept checking my phone messages & emails. There were of course none there but anything was better than stillness. Whew! it was like a fever that broke - then I was blessed with calm. Its not the first time I have experienced that, but it still catch's me off guard.

Since then I have thinking about all the ways I busy myself rather than be still.Most of them not very productive other than getting high marks for distraction. So I wondered about this need I have had to achieve & collect trophies "of all sorts" in my life. Thankfully, that need has abated - but in its place is an unsettled sense of a need to know what awaits. Which is just another distraction, of course.

I had a dream (while I was awake) that on my "judgment day". I don't really believe there is such a day but if there was, there would be two lines waiting to get in. One would be the high achievers line with their arms full "life resumes". The other line was those that "loved well"; that meaning being able to give and receive love. I wondered which line would be longer?? This is of course only a dream! Or is it??
