We can meditate, can do Yoga, can do Dhyana (One form of Meditation) or just simply sit quite with empty mind. Do it just for 15 min daily and you can observe the new energy within you.
There is a line from Lao Tzu.
“Peace is in the emptiness. Emptiness is in the fast of the mind.” It’s in the quiet, still moments that we feel what matters in life. Standing on the shore of a lake. Looking out over a canyon. Resting your head against someone else’s. It’s a shortage of these moments that give rise to the feeling that we haven’t lived enough, that we have to keep going. Seeking them out, encouraging them is what makes you feel like you’ve done plenty.”
In quest of gaining more, we forget the power of less, we forget to enjoy those, that we already have. We forget to spend time with our loved one’s (Parents, Spouse, Kids etc.). We are just running behind an imaginary goal.
Just do a postmortem test on your life, think you are at the age of 65, now you are retired, you don’t have any work to do, your desires are less now, you want to spend the time with your loved one’s but unfortunately some of them is not with you now: It’s life my friend! Your kids are young now, they are married, and they have their own life and they are too in the race of life. They also don’t have time to spend with you now, the same as you were not having time to spend with them in their childhood.
We normally, skip the very important things for later in life, but my friend life does not stop for you, it will continue, and that later moment never come. Whatever is there, it is now. Spend the time with your loved ones, do the work you want to do now.
And when you realize this, when you are in quite moments. Spend some time with you only, alone. Just sit calm in one corner of your house or on any natural place, far from any kind of noise. Let the soul talk to you, that is the best conversation you would have in your life.
In a fast-paced world driven by noise, excitement, and continuous connections via mobile, Facebook etc., thanks to technology, I think we’ve lost an appreciation for something essential to the human experience: Quiet moments.
Each person has their own way to spend time with himself, t can be just sit calm and close your eyes and try to empty your mind, it can be just sit and start reading any good book, it can be exercise, it can be swimming. It can be anything that you enjoy doing.
In today’s world, we are too busy with technology, mobiles, Facebook, twitter, WhatsApp, movies, news, TV etc. This all things do not matter to you most, when you think in a long term. News and TV programs are momentary, just collecting facts or information does not help you to improve the quality of your life. Increase the number of friends and like on Facebook and twitter does not help you to get a loyal friend and it also does not help you to improve your life. Too much use of mobile also not good, it may damage your eyes and there are many case where people lost their life while they were too busy with their mobiles.
Technology have both the sides, if you use it in proper way, it will help you to improve your life and your work. But if you misuse it, it will ruin your life, your relations, your health.
Now the question come, how do we overcome this noise in our lives and reconnect with our inner voice? Do we abandon society’s progress and values?
The answer is different for each person. These quiet moments can be a simple fifteen minutes unplugged on the deck in solitary reflection. They can be a trip to a local park or outdoor area or a temple, mosque, church. They can be a walk in a quiet section of town with a loved one or an afternoon on a lounge chair. They can be a long, hot bubble bath or an hour on a secluded exercise, swim.
These quiet moments come in all forms.
These moments remind us what truly brings joy and purpose to our lives. They remind us to live the life we have today, and to focus on the beauty around us in the present. They remind us there is so much to be thankful for and that life is a journey we need to appreciate every step of the way.
So, take a moment, take a break, and take some time to find the quiet in your life. For a moment or an afternoon or even a full day, let the sun and the outdoors be your life’s soundtrack from time to time. Let the quietude of your surroundings remind you that life is beautiful and meant to be appreciated.
Most of all, let the quiet moments in life remind you that your inner voice deserves to be heard.
I think the below image is the best help to get more quiet moments in our life.
