“Silence is a great source of strength.”
~Lao Tzu

I recently changed locale: a cabin in the woods near a lake for a large metropolis.

Walking through town I am surrounded by concrete, noise, exhaust, overpowering perfumes, fragrance additives, tobacco smoke, lots of people, chaotic energy, media stimulation vying for (my) attention, and so on. Historically, anxiety and unrest would have quickly taken hold. Thankfully, the solitude and quietness developed while living simply in nature have woven themselves into my fibres. Peaceful awareness is the primary experience in this visit.

Although I’m physically separated from my beloved forest environment, she resonates deeply within.

I invite you to regularly create room for fostering silence in your life.
