Technology does not only offer us speed and a wide array of information. It also gives us distraction, noise, and confusion.
Do you have a place where you can go daily to claim a quiet interlude, far away from the fray and anger of the world? Our modern world is always a noisy place, but someone turned up the volume full blast on us at the beginning of 2020. When you add it onto the discouragement and loss around the COVID scenario, mentally and emotionally it can feel like just too much some days.
People often equate the word sacred with church, but have you considered, finding the sacred has to begin with your own internal landscape? If you do not honor the sacred within you, if you do not recognize that you are to be honored first and foremost, sooner or later you will have nothing left to give to anyone else.
If you have not already done so, establish a sacred place where you can find some quiet and cultivate peace within yourself. where you can start to hear your own voice again. A little piece of nature may be a very good start.
As the famous nature enthusiast and writer John Muir said, “Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.”
“Your sacred place is where you can find yourself, over and over again. ~ Joseph Campbell
