Here is a quiet space where there is rest from your teeming thoughts, beauty and truth to replenish your soul and time to reawaken and reclaim your mind .
Can you picture yourself sitting on a step of this bridge, maybe leaning back against the bridge post? Can you imagine how quiet this beautiful remote place is? There’s the quiet murmur of the little stream flowing under the bridge. There’s the occasional twitter of birds in the trees. The soft breeze perfumed by blossom scent gently rustles the nearby leaves. You are comfortable and relaxed, not too warm and not too cool.
Stay as long as you like and do come back again when you need to take time out.
Raising your consciousness is an on going, hopefully daily, exercise. Some days are better than others. It certainly helps to find a quiet place to refocus and recenter. If this is not physically possible then by using your power of imagination, you can take your sanctuary with you – your own inner sanctuary, where you can never be disturbed.
Here are some words of wisdom to ponder:
True power is that which is capable of changing one within the self – of taking you from where you are, shifting the many feelings within your cluster, re-arranging the totality of the Self, and making you a wholly and totally different person. No matter what your path in life, essentially the only thing that can take you from one point to the point of perfection is in three phases.
- Firstly, there is the man who knows about God –
- Then there is the phase where he becomes a friend of God, whatever God may be
- And thirdly the man becomes God.
