but peace amid the storm.
When you close your eyes, what do you see? Is it total darkness or is it light?
Whatever it is that you see, stay in that moment... savor that "space" for awhile.
Does your mind start to race? Does panic start to grip you?
Rid your mind of thoughts and be still. [Remember this: The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it. -Eckhart Tolle]
This quiet solitude is where you commune with your inner self- a place of harmony and peace.
"It is in the stillness of your mind where you find help for your soul."
Stillness brings forth the voice from within. It is mental and silent listening. To some, it is prayer and worship. For me, it is my private conversation with God- He talks, I listen.
"If you cannot find peace within yourself, you will never find it anywhere else."
We spend too much time and effort worrying about things we have no control of in the first place. In fact, we even try to change things that we cannot change when the wiser course is just to accept the inevitable.
Like a roller coaster ride, life will take us up and down, scaring and thrilling the hell out of us. There are no brakes nor steering wheel and there is no way out. Don't you think it's best to just sit back and enjoy the experience because we won't get a second ride?
