“You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.”
I first heard this quote when listening to a lecture by Deepak Chopra (if you don’t know his work I encourage you to get acquainted with it as soon as possible). It spoke to me so deeply. Firstly, we as humans get so busy in our daily lives, in the pressures of bills, work, and endless responsibility that we never are truly silent. It takes us so much dedication just to clean our minds and allow them to rest in stillness. We have separated ourselves from the earth, from the great energy network that is the universe because we are too tangled up in our own dramas. I challenge you to sit in stillness today. Dedicate at least 15 minutes to meditation. Try that for a week, and see if it doesn’t help solve some of your problems. Commune with nature (which is where you came from) and give it your appreciation. Be still. Observe.
