Where do you go to find peace in your life?
Is it the gym, TV, the internet, the bar? the therapists couch?
Perhaps the place of serenity, your sacred space, your inner sanctuary is to be found anytime, anyplace you choose. It requires a closing out of the outside world and for a few moments to be with your breath.
The past hold little peace for us. Our minds are filled with memories, thoughts, feelings. Similarly the future becomes an open field of wishes, fears and doubts.
Only the moment between the inhalation and exhalation is real. It is now. We are safe there. It is the only time that exists. We need to remember it. We need to reclaim it.
It is no further from us than our next breath.
