More information is hurled at our minds today than at any time in history, and we are reacting negatively to the overload. The human attention span is shrinking in response to the ever-increasing number of demands being placed on it, and our nerves are raw from wear.
In order to draw closer to our soul, we need less in our lives, not more. Instead of hurrying to fill the voids in our schedule with more activity, we need to take time to experience the sensual and spiritual side of life: We need to nourish the relationship with our soul and allow it to grow.
Sensuality is akin to the soul. We need to bring sensuality back into our everyday lives. When was the last time you lay in fresh-cut grass and felt the warmth of the sunshine on your face and the softness of the breeze on your skin? Can you remember the last time you spent the entire day in bed with your lover, or ate spaghetti with your hands?
