“Remember: The entrance door to the sanctuary is always inside you.” ~Rumi
Whenever I’m under stress, my first impulse is to look outside myself for relief. I might reach for an easy distraction — say, snacking on something I shouldn’t eat, surfing the web, or watching a mindless program on television.
But as the poet Rumi reminds us, the key to serenity is within us. We won’t find it elsewhere. The challenge is learning how to unlock the door to our own place of peace and comfort. ~CL
