COMMENT: [When I am feeling burdened by too many stimuli, too many things to do and consider, or too many people to deal with, I, like probably most people, go in search of recovery and try to re-energize.
Sometimes I go outside myself for this—into the wild or for a walk in the neighborhood, for example. Other times I just on the spot let my head turn empty of thought altogether. But usually I turn inward and travel the loosely knit spaces I find there.
I am able to attain the restoration I need almost only when I am alone with myself. I grasp life’s meaning best from within the private quarters of my being.
And when I take the time to go inside myself without distractions, to absorb and take refuge in the connectedness that comes to me there, it is then I am able to return to you and give my best. rt]
