High NoonPosted: June 21, 2013
It is unwise to be too sure of one’s own wisdom. It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might err-
I’ve been thinking a lot recently about what is really blocking the joy we experience while exploring a “healthier” path, our creativity throughout the day, and our peace of mind at night?
Quite surprisingly I may have stumbled on an interesting idea to discuss with you: Peace, quite, bliss, comfort, awareness, stillness … Solitude.
We live in a world that worships fierce independence, yet we deeply fear being alienated and not instantly responding to others: We are over-clocked and over-connected. We are terminally out of touch with our bodies and spirit. Our need for genuine and constructive solitude is utterly lost, looking under the cushions of the couch, we are lost as well.
Today, more than any other time in the year, we need to embrace and seek solitude. Being alone with our thoughts gives us precious insight on how and where to adjust our lives. Solitude brings forth our desire and passion to explore, our curiosity about nature and this beautiful world, our purpose, our individuality.
The sudden, deep thoughts, the explosion of our imaginations, our burgeoning passion evolves in solitude. Enjoy the few extra minutes we have been afforded today, be well and please take care!
