Sitting in the relative stillness of the later part of the midnight hour, marveling at the fact that it has been over a month since I last published an article, the silence is striking. It does not compare to the cacophony of the natural world that takes over at night, yet it is what we have grown to know. If outdoors, we may be kept awake at night by nature’s dark symphony; while indoors, we are able to silence the external disruption in an attempt to focus on the internal.

Most often, many of us become acclimated to the noise of our surroundings. People who live near an extremely noisy place, such as a railroad or airport terminal, become inured, learning over time to not let such noise affect them. For sensitive people, balancing the noise, whether internal or external, is not always an easy thing to do.

It seems no matter what the noise may be, whether it is something as beautiful as music or as jarring as an alarm, it takes silence to appreciate it. There is a time of relative stillness when the noise of every creature is balanced to nature’s satisfaction. More often than not, we must attune our selves to accept whatever that state of balance is.

This is true of not only sounds, but also just about any other imbalance there may be in life. In order to come to terms with something, whether it is something pleasant or disturbing, working along with nature gives us the ability to find that comfort level with which we can live. Because each of us is just a little different, the amount of balance we us must apply is also unique to each of us.

We call this point of balance, this state of relative stillness, “peace.”

It is my wish for us (((All))) that we find this peace, in every place and time we happen to be.
