That’s the quiet within.

It’s that voice in your head that tells you wherever you are, “it seems too quiet in here!”

It’s the quiet you notice when the noise is missing.

Like when you first wake up in the morning. Before the kids stir. Before the dog’s breath is spraying on you. Before the sounds of the birds reach your ears. Even before your eyes are fully opened.

Cherish that quietness, that peacefulness, for every moment of your coming day. Carry that peacefulness close to you, and that peacefulness will carry you when it’s not so quiet.

We think we are too busy to get still, to become quiet and listen to peace. This is all a mistake. No one is too busy to be made whole.

— Ernest Holmes, The Philosophy of Jesus
