I watch myself reacting, having moments of getting caught up in the whirling. It’s exhausting. So I sit and listen.
I search for stillness and solitude. The kind of solitude that heals, warms, awakens, enlivens. It remains elusive at the moment, just barely out of reach but close enough to tantalize.
I sit. I wait for the time to come for relaxing into natural, peaceful, quiet contemplation.
Until then, I watch the world around me spin by. I watch myself reacting, having moments of getting caught up in the whirling. It is exhausting.
So I sit and listen.
I watch, breathe, make room, however little at the moment, for healing.

i too find it exhausting when i engage with, get caught up in, the whirling mind.
there is no greater act of faith than coming back again and again to the stillness, just sitting. this is healing.
healing indeed. that’s one of my favorite qualities of the stillness.
