When life feels noisy, or overwhelming, the old habit is to clamp down, try and get things under control. But the deepest part of me knows that my true rest, my joy even, comes when i take a step back, take a breath, a bath, a break from the endless stream of thinking and from the outer world, just for a moment. Then i can get back in the game with a clearer head. Sometimes, i pretend that there is absolutely nothing required of me. Just for a moment. I put myself on this empty road, in my mind, and drive for a while. (or walk or ride my bike) I explore the QUIET, the SPACE, the precious time with my Self. It feels like my cells soak up something VITAL. And when i decide to enter the noise again, i have so much to offer. Bowing in gratitude to what always waits in peace for me, my Self.
