It can be an easy, and sometimes comforting, choice to disconnect. We disconnect from the body, getting lost in the noise of the mind. We also tend to disconnect from discomfort, getting lost in distracting habits and gadgets.
It may be a challenging, even uncomfortable, choice to reconnect with our inner experience. Finding a practice like mindful movement or meditation helps us reconnect the mind into the body and the body onto the ground. If we want to skillfully navigate the noise of life, we must connect with the strength of silence within.
In mindful presence,
When you connect to the silence within you,
that is when you can make sense of the disturbance going on around you.
