Are there are times when all you want is a little quiet. When the world is so loud with talk, conflict, and opinions that you think you will go crazy if you have to listen to one more minute of it. Every one telling you how you should think, how you should feel, and if you don’t agree with the noise, it gets louder.
The truth is that we don’t have to listen to any of it. It is a choice. We choose to read posts on social media. We choose to get involved in the latest gossip and controversary in our work place. We choose to listen to the negativity that permeates our television sets. We do this under the pretense of keeping ourselves informed of the events around us. If we are really honest with ourselves, there is a little part of us that finds it interesting and exciting. Beware…the price to pay is your peace. You know that inner peace that lets you know that everything is good with your soul.
Stop the insanity! Turn off the noise. No T.V. , no social media, no gossip, and no negative people. Seek serenity and solitude for just one day. Close your eyes and breathe in deeply. Talk to God. Be in touch with your body as you feel the tension in your neck and your shoulders fade away, and the ache in your back lessen. Get away from the computers and the electronics and breathe in some negative ions. Go somewhere beautiful. Be one with nature and allow the tranquility to renew your soul.
Seek serenity…it is good for the soul
