Thank you so much for sharing this. Your experience hits home with me. It is very reminiscent of my experience volunteering at an intentional community in Thailand for people recovering from drug addictions. I remember the exact moment after I arrived when I, too, realized that there was no rush and that being present in each moment was more important than getting through my next task. There was a resident from Finland who would give me a gentle reminder each morning with a smile and the short Thai phrase "sabay sabay" which is a reminder that there's no need to rush or worry.
