The Answer to The Chaos Became a Quiet Holy Mantra
“…Learn to silence the chattering of your ego, whether through prayer, meditation, or a long walk in the park. Find that place where you can detach from the pressures of the world. Find that place where your body and spirit work together in harmony…You don’t need the right car, the right shoes, the right girlfriend to be complete. All you really need is to be yourself. Your spirit is the real you. Let it guide you…Be still. Listen to your spirit say, I am, and I am enough. In the silence, you’ll hear God…”
Although I align myself with beliefs that are more spiritual rather than religious and prefer using the term “universe” instead of God, this quote is simply beautiful no matter what higher power (or lack there of) you accept.
Find the place inside yourself where you can be still and just “be”. This is a place of acceptance, peace, and calm. In life, the constant chatter of the ego can be deafening and yet unnoticed at the same time. That is, without being conscious of the chatter of the ego, the ever-constant chatter of life becomes your “self”. However, when you can be still, when you can detach from the ego, what is unveiled is You, -in harmony, in calm, at peace.
