Tedious chores are good to do. It gives the mind the freedom to roam while the body is occupied by movement. Knitting, ironing, mowing grass…All the stuff that is usually “rented out” so we can stay even busier and faster, instead of giving ourselves time to ponder and at the same time feel pleased with simple accomplishments. Silence is peace and peace needs time.
Solitude is nothing like loneliness; where loneliness is imposed, solitude is choice. Solitude and Silence are sisters and belong together. When I choose solitude, everything slows down and my world gets more quiet. My perceptions are heightened and I receive my best teachings, ideas, visions and solutions. This is serious downtime with Self.
