My life is found insolitude. By this I mean that it is only in solitude, stillness and silencethat I have the opportunity to reflect, to take stock of my life and examineits direction, to consider my motivations and the deep longings hidden fromview. Without this time of reflection my life becomes reactionary and shallow.I bounce from activity to activity following the never ending cry of demands. Iact without ever examining whether or not I should. This is the way most of ourculture lives, on a fast moving freeway of activity. Yet it is clear, proven byeach of us time and time again, this path no matter how good the activitiesalways leads to emptiness. So let us follow the little used path which leads usaway from the crowd up to that quiet place high on the hill where we canfinally see what is truly important and how we should therefore live.
