Zen vs. Acceleration
Charlie Ambler

Our insatiable hunger for results fuels our constant feelings of inadequacy and discontentment.

We’ve been conditioned to crave external validation: money, respect, power, love, to feel needed. “I am not enough” is the root fallacy of this suffering.

How can we take a step back? How can we find peace, in the chaotic thickness of our day to day lives? It feels insurmountable.

We need to slow down. Easier said than done. It takes practice, but it doesn’t need to be complicated. As Charlie says, just sit.
