As I was looking out of my window, watching the snow continue to fall here in Middle TN, I thought of how quiet and still everything seems at the moment. The snow insulates and absorbs sounds and everything becomes still and quiet. Of course, I then thought of our inner stillness – our inner quiet that can insulate and help absorb all of the sounds of the world around us and allow us to find that deep sense of calm that I can see outside of my window at the moment. Using the snow, ice, and cold weather as cues to remember to breathe, focusing on the now, can really help move more towards that inner peace and calmness. Stay warm and healthy!
