Inner Peace and Joy Tip # 50: Seek Solitude

Inner Peace and Joy Daily Meditation Tip: The Book of Proverbs is loaded with wisdom nuggets. Read Proverbs 19, pull out the wisdom nuggets and apply them to your life.

I was watching a movie last night about a man living alone in the wilderness in the middle of nowhere. As I watched the movie, I silently thought to myself, what would make a person want to live in the middle of nowhere by themselves.

I reasoned maybe a tragedy? An outlaw? A hermit? Then it occurred to me........

What the wilderness has that society does not is Solitude. When you are alone in the wilderness there is a sense of Peace. Solitude is a necessary component to maintaining your Inner Peace.

Now I am not suggesting that you should take the extreme and live in solitude all by yourself, but you do need to find a quiet place for about an hour every day just to hear your Inner Self speak. Your place of solitude may be waking up early in the mornings when everyone else is still asleep and meditating or just sitting quiet.
It could also be your bathroom or as simple as shutting your office door while you are on lunch and turning off your cell phone. Whatever works for you.

When you are in solitude, the only person you have to deal with is yourself. You will be surprised how many of the answers to your problems will be answered by your Higher Self,when you take the time to seek solitude and listen.
