Holiday Meditation….

Let us now move away from the demands and needs of our chaotic world and slip into our inner world, into the quite, still room of the mind. it is a place, a space of calm, stillness and peace. Here, I can let go of my concerns, worries and constant fears.  In this dimension in this plane  of peace. The incessant voices grow distant and quite. And in this arena of inner calm and soft serenity, my racing thoughts begin to slow down, begin to lose momentum and are absorbed by inner peace I am surrounded by silence, by peace. And that soft vibration soothes my mind and calms my thoughts, and I am held in the spell of tranquility, I am bathed in the inner light of the inner self, and I float and drift in this sea of silence, in this sea of peace.For here the waves of the world cannot come, and I feel light and calm.” – Meditation: The 13 Pathways to Happiness.

Patience…..

“I want to beg of you much as I can to be patient toward all that’s unsolved in your heart, and learn to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms, or like books that are written in a very foreign tongue.

Do not seek the answers, which cannot be given  to you, because you would not be able to live them, and the point is to live everything.

Live the question now, perhaps you will then, gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”~ Rainer Maria Rilke
