When we take time to reflect inwardly and repair what is broken inside, then we can live happily. Each day we face many tests, some small some big . Meditation can used to build the power to withdraw even only for a minute and it allows us to restore peace of mind.
This is a reblog of an old post , be sure to read the original.
The Power to Withdraw
A tortoise carries its shell with it. It retreats into his shell when it is time to rest or to escape from danger.
When I reflect, contemplate and spend time introspectively, I withdraw in a proactive way. I withdraw with an intention to build inner peace and silence. Through meditation, we step inside and connect with I the Soul and The Divine. The Divine is the Ocean of Peace. When I meditate I connect to that Ocean of Peace and that peace will transfer to I, the Soul. I become more and more peaceful, calm, content and stable.
Meditation allows me to step inwards intentionally, to carve out time for inner peace and silence. I build an inner strength of peace. I build a fortress, a shell of the tortoise that I can step into anytime to make myself peace, calm, silent and whole.
