Blog: My Life Is Found In Solitude - March 26, 2018
My life is found in
solitude. By this I mean that it is only in solitude, stillness and silence
that I have the opportunity to reflect, to take stock of my life and examine
its direction, to consider my motivations and the deep longings hidden from
view. Without this time of reflection my life becomes reactionary and shallow.
I bounce from activity to activity following the never ending cry of demands. I
act without ever examining whether or not I should. This is the way most of our
culture lives, on a fast moving freeway of activity. Yet it is clear, proven by
each of us time and time again, this path no matter how good the activities
always leads to emptiness. So let us follow the little used path which leads us
away from the crowd up to that quiet place high on the hill where we can
finally see what is truly important and how we should therefore live.
