Take a seat

Sometimes, all we need to do in this fast-paced world is to allow ourselves to take a breather. For someone to tell us that it is alright to take a break. To stop what we are doing and do something that we enjoy for a change. To take heed of the cliche and stop to smell the roses. To take a breath so deep that it inhales entire kingdoms. To think for a moment which side we are on. Not many come to realise the paradox that we live in. Then after months or even years of prayer and fasting, we can finally take a seat at the banquet and allow our heart, mind and body to be fed. Maybe only then will the world not seem so crazy.
