There are moments in life, where the chaos of the outside world invade one’s inner sanctum. Thoughts and voices keep playing through one’s mind, and infiltrate every aspect of one’s life. These are the symptoms of losing one’s self in the outside world. It’s time to seek solitude. . .
Solitude is intentionally being alone. It means stepping outside one’s daily life to spend time with one’s self, without interruptions from anyone known. It makes time to find one’s self. . .
We each have our own outlet for seeking solitude. Mine is going out into nature with my camera. Once behind the lens, the world disappears, and the only thing that exists is the subject of the photograph.
Another equally powerful way to travel the path of self-discovery it to journal or write. It take courage to write down our inner thoughts, because one cannot deny what has been written. Though, our individual troubles seem to fall into perspective once placed on a piece of paper. . .
Sometimes, simply walking on the beach listening to the waves brings back a sense of self. It truly is time spent alone, without input from other people. Each of us need time to re-charge our batteries, and find quietness. . .
Love & Light to All. . .Karen
