Are there times when you just feel like retreating from the world?
Should you find yourself living in a busy world, if you have not done so, it’s time to create your haven of tranquillity.
What could your haven of tranquillity be?
I believe, it is a place you can call your own, where every day you choose to:
- set your intentions for the day,
- self-reflect after a day at work,
- meditate and pray or
- retreat to in order to find serenity.
Your haven of tranquillity could be located in a dedicated area of your home and represent or symbolize everything you love and aspire to.
Let your imagination run wild as you create your haven of tranquillity, it could include some memorable photographs, a special item, which brings you joy, your vision board, some crystals etc.
Your haven of tranquillity could also be a special place outdoors, which is peaceful, inspiring you would like to retreat to from time to time if it is not possible for you to go there every day. For example, my haven of tranquillity in nature is The Japanese Garden in Holland Park, London. It is for me a great source of inspiration.
In his book ‘As a Man Thinketh’, James Allen dedicated a whole passage to serenity.
“Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom. It is the result of long and patient effort in self-control. Its presence is an indication of ripened experience, and of a more than ordinary knowledge of the laws and operations of thought. A man becomes calm in the measure that he understands himself as a thought-evolved being, for such knowledge necessitates the understanding of others as the result of thought, and as he develops a right understanding, and sees more and more clearly the internal relations of things by the action of cause and effect, he ceases to fuss and fume and worry and grieve, and remains poised, steadfast, serene.”
May this extract from James Allen’s book inspire you to use your haven of tranquillity as a place where you find greater serenity.
