Sitting. Feeling silence enfold me. Pushing away the thundering of thoughts that plead for my attention in place of silence. My breath becoming more of a joy than a natural, unthought of occurrence. Each inhale sweeter than the last and each exhale deeper and more honest than the one before it. I feel the air swirl around me, dancing on the energy in its presence. Holding onto the comfort and stillness that is now. Enjoying the solitude in this present moment. Hearing the bells chime…Coming to, feeling the peace and wholeness that I’ve been longing for. Wondering, why don’t I do this more often?
