empty-chair

I have a quote from Rumi taped to my monitor that reads, “A little while alone in your room will prove more valuable than anything else that could ever be given to you”.
This moves me as I know how many times I can find myself running around (no matter how composed I look) knowing what I really need is to be alone in my room, to have the stillness of mind for a little while which will let my innermost being be nourished and reveal its self to me.
Simple enough to say yet with the mind as active and bossy as it seems to be it can take real effort to go be alone and still. I love to be reminded of this and will right now heed Rumi’s words of wisdom.
