Silence and Solitude

Nowhere can man find a quieter or more untroubled retreat than in his own soul.

Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

Each day I ensure I cultivate a space for silence in solitude. It is in this space that I find my breath and simply allow myself to pay attention. Thoughts come thoughts go. Sensations come and sensations go. With each one I see or feel I come back to my breath. Often this coming back creates a new space for emotions to arise. And, when I am attuned to both thoughts and sensations I am able to find the place within my heart to allow myself to see the emotions for what they are; in doing so I see them pass.

And while, for me in silence it is easy to see thoughts and sensations come and go, my emotional connection within was suppressed for so long it now takes much awareness and intention to investigate non judgmentally before I am able to see clarity.

It takes much intention and curiosity to make sense of my mind and body link, and the associations between my thoughts, sensations, and emotions together as differentiated elements of the one system. Yet, even in saying this I cannot convey the peace that comes when I come back and return to my breath.
