Everything comes to a rest after being in motion. Musicians learn to read the rest signs on musical scores. Trains, cars and airplanes come to a stop to unload and reload passengers or perhaps they have come to the end of their destined routes.
Birds stop flying to eat, regather and get their directions. They may need to confer with the leader who is flying the point and see the new plan. But they still have to come down to the ground to have that communication.
Wise ones know that in order to make good choices, they must descend from the mountains of high activity. Then, they can come to a low valley point and simply stop. As they rest, they can reflect, reassess, analyze and decide on what needs to be done next. They can then create a new blueprint or action plan.
When the mind, body and soul are in one accord and all of the right tools are in place, they can emerge from those resting places. They are then fired up and ready to go on. They may have had to put everything and everyone on hold but now, they can have continued success. Then they are recharged, replenished and as all systems are set to go, they can assertively, dive in!
