sitting in a quiet room

By
Real Estate Agent with Century 21 New Millenium

 

 

All misery derives from the inability to sit in a quiet room alone.

~ unknown (via Jared Akers)    

how many of us are happy with our own company?  comfortable spending time with no person other than ourselves?  being alone with our thoughts in silent contemplation.  being happy and able to enjoy and inhabit your space.  looking inward to examine how you feel at that moment without the distractions of the latest i-pod, phone, text, e-mail or whatever technology will be born to invade our world and deny our contemplation.  looking outward to EXPERIENCE the joys of living, breathing, touching, hearing, seeing what glories the natural world displays for us every second of every day.

we are a unique part and parcel in the universe that abounds.  a singular combination of atomic particles endowed with the spark of thought which gives us being, our soul if you will.  and the greatest gift we can give to ourselves, and ultimately others, is the simple act of being able to sit in a quiet room alone.  

happy in your being, examining and bringing your inner light and peace to the fore.  to contemplate the means by which you will share it with the world.

try it today, being physically alone with your thoughts.  i venture to say that if you are truly centered, you will never feel lonely.  for your best friend and supporter is always with you. 

  seek and ye shall find.

If you are grateful, count your blessings morning, noon and night...you will not be lonely, uncentetered. If you love your job of helping people. being a matchmaker, a locator for property, your work will be a labor of love, not feel like a job. It is not about you or me...it is about others. Be active in your community, be the best at your job for a satisfaction and paycheck to raise your family, work hard to be happy, grateful, content. No one likes a whiner. There is no place for lazy in the real estate marketing sport.

Marianne...

I do this all the time. It's meditation and it's so good for us. Now if we could just people to leave us be, we'd be good to go :)

TLW...ROAR!
