Find solitude. In the deepest sense pull back from the world. In the deepest sense give yourself space without interruption. In the deepest sense shut out and shut off all distraction and remove yourself from the outer world to find quiet within. Find solitude in the darkness or in the light. Find solitude in a quiet room or in the quiet of nature. Find solitude in the calmness of water or on the peace of a mountaintop. Find solitude behind your closed eyelids, in the breath in your body, in the stillness of your mind. Solitude may be found even in the most unlikely of places. Just be completely alone and withdrawn for a little while each day. And don’t forget to enjoy it! That too is to be found in solitude, peace and joy!
