In silent reflection, I connect with my essence of peace.
Experiencing a sense of inner peace while living in the noise and bustle of a major metropolis is possible. Whatever happens in the outer world, we can turn at any time to the silence of our being—the Christ Presence within—through prayer and meditation to reconnect with our essence of peace. The opportunity to spend time away from the busyness of life is a blessing and a gift. To find that place of stillness, we must first tune out external sounds and, with confidence and faith, tune in to the creative silence at the heart of our being. We reconnect with God’s life-giving presence. In a peaceful inner space, we are nourished and supplied with all that we need to return to the outer world.
Let your adornment be the inner self with the lasting beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in God’s sight.—1 Peter 3:4
