Before you go out, go within

To be alone with one’s own mind is to be available to the entire world.

Silence is the beginning of community. And solitude opens the way for true intimacy with others.

Connecting with family and friends is essential, but unless we make time for contacting our own inner depths, we risk becoming superficial automatons who are always “out and about” but never fully present.

Through the inward communion of meditation and contemplation we cultivate a quality of awareness that makes us more, not less, accessible to the people we love.

    but never fully present.”

    Even the title jumps out:
    “Before you go out, go within.”

    Spot on. So many of your posts just hum.

    I’ll say it again: You do have the poet in you.

    1. Thanks Alana 🙂 That means a lot. I hope the spirit of the poet possess me more fully. Writing has been a funny thing for me lately. Sometimes, the muse seems so liberal and free. At other times, she seems like she’s hijacking my mind and stealing my words leaving me with nothing to say. I don’t know if this will ever happen, but I do hope for a time when the spirit of the poet flows through my blood and speaks through me even on my off days 🙂
