Moments of Stillness
– A Reflection –
When was the last time you had a moment just by yourself? When was the last time you enjoyed some moments of peaceful quietness?
For most people, in the busy everyday life in between getting up, going to work, meeting up with friends, going to the gym or a Yoga class, coming home, watching TV and then going to bed before starting the day all over again, there doesn’t seem any time for these moments of stillness anymore.
I’m very fortunate to live on a beautiful island for a couple of months a year, surrounded by nature. There are jungle hills, so green and with such a density like I’ve rarely seen it in my life. My bungalow is situated just five meters from the blue and crystal-clear waters. It’s so peaceful here and life is very simple. Coming here always makes me realize that we really don’t need much to be happy.
