Hurry excludes love. The DNA of hurry means that love cannot thrive in its company.
Our hearts need time for love to flourish to begin to grow, to thrive and to mature.
Bedtime rituals with little ones can be filled with love and affection, snuggles, kisses and whispered promises or they can be filled with impatience, fatigue and worn out words. Its my turn, time for me whispers hurry – go to sleep please! It has been a busy day.
I sit with a bride and groom and its not long before we are talking about how hurry is filling the wedding with tension and stress. Friends don’t seem to be entering into the celebrations. Joy seems restrained, unwanted questions asked. Parents seem distant, fearful and careful with their words and affection. Where there was once ease and freedom relationships are now tense, strained and careful. The heart of the bride and groom is guarded as they feel everyone is against their love. The disappointment burns a hole in their heart and they are cleaving to each other, isolating from those that don’t seem to express their joy.
And yet – no one is a bad person. Hurry is simply having its way. Hearts and souls haven’t had time to get to know them as a couple before the engagement was announced. Parents who have guarded their daughter for a lifetime are now faced with releasing that heart to someone they barely know. Hurry has achieved its work peoples hearts are excluded rather than included.
Hurry is lethal to the soul and to soul sharing. It insists that love be born prematurely. It demands acceptance, it demands trust and it demands agreement. The soul of the other withdraws, withholds and reacts.
Love cannot flourish where hurry exists. Love is patient. Love pays respect to the ticking of the clock. It slows the soul down long enough to be still so that the it can see the heart of the other. With wisdom born from patience love wraps its arm around the other and draws it close so that both heartbeats can be shared.
If we want love we have to ruthlessly eliminate hurry from our life.
