The elevator is broken; use the Steps.
By: Hazelden Meditation Series
Elevators are easy. We push a button and we go right to the top. The way is fast, quick, and silent. We don’t work up a sweat. We don’t get out of breath. We can’t trip and fall. There is not much time to communicate with anyone else along the way so we don’t have to use any effort or thought. We can daydream as we face the front of the car and stare at the numbers as they change from floor to floor.
Some of us are simply living our lives like we are riding elevators. Some of us live “house”. Some of us live the normal routine of wake-up, go to work, come back home, and go to sleep. While others just have it simply – easy! Until we crashed. Until life hits us in the Face!
I will sometimes sweat, stumble, get out of breath in my climb, but I’ll take the time to talk with and learn from others who are taking the Steps with me.
