Solitude

The beauty of nature is in the quiet solitude it offers as we look out into the changing landscape of the wilderness.

Where do you find your inner peace?

  1. Wonderful question! I could cite a number of places – in my car whilst driving, when I withdraw and turtle, in my spirituality including Reiki, in a book, or in my writing…but where I truly find my inner peace is… in me.

      1. The whole of my life has been one of conflict – me vs my body, which only is in a remissive truce stage held in at times, uneasy check by hope. Now there is the whole guilt element over damage done.

        I have to reconcile these things in order to function. I’m someone who has a supertanker full of empathy, and what leaves me seeking my own answers is one fundamental instruct from Reiki….heal yourself first. I can feel the unease, I know the warring factions are there, but I also know there is a lot of good in me that should not be shut down because of the other things.

        I can reset, through renewed and revisiting introspection, through outer distraction, by invoking time, by concentrating on the people and beliefs (not necessarily spiritual) I hold dear.

      2. I think that should be one of life’s tenants is to heal yourself first. If you don’t look after your emotional and spiritual well -being – how can you be there for someone else?

      3. And it is incredibly hard to do. I never ever prayed for myself – until I started Reiki, and it was incredibly hard to overcome that block.
        What you say is exactly right… you cannot hope to be of assistance to another unless you give yourself some kindness.

      4. I kept a Reiki cartoon on my wall at work. It showed a woman lying on a massage table, the Reiki practitioner wielding a lawn rake. The patient remarks ‘I had a very different understanding of what Reiki is all about.’

    1. Do you get freaked out? Sometimes you can be alone with a million people around you to find that calmness.

      The thought of ghosts does spook me! But when I’m in the wilderness I think it has so many stories and tales to tell. I always wonder who explored this beautiful lake? Did they watch the moon rise at the very spot I’m standing? It’s moments like that I find a peacefulness just looking out over the lake.

  2. At the beach! When I was broke and anxious in law school, I’d hop on the bus straight from UCLA to the Santa Monica pier. It took very little money to purchase that bus ride, and even less to dip my toes in the water and think about all the people connected by that body of water. Even thinking about it fills me with peace.

  3. Love this photo! I inner peace at the end of a long run, or a good vinayasa yoga session, or at the top of a mountain hike, or out in the middle of big water in a kayak or canoe. For some reason, I need to actually move to escape my demons (or neuroses). What a peaceful shot.

    1. Thank you! It was a beautiful night! I couldn’t believe how big and full the moon looked. I think Kinbasket maybe one of my favorite camping destinations! Sometimes I just enjoy the scenery, have time to let out a big exhale, and remember how beautiful life truly is…It’s when I’m in the city I feel like I need to move, move, to clear my thoughts.

  4. Advil & wine? We are supposed to have inner peace? Now you tell me????? UGH! Where have you been the last few weeks?

    But seriously, it is a great question…. and one that sometimes is easier than others to accomplish. For the most part, I think I exercising gives me some inner peace. Making the time in the AM to do something for myself, and have some alone time, helps me prepare for whatever the day brings ahead….
