The entrance to the door of the sanctuary, is inside of you… Rumi
There are times throughout are life that we may want to run away from our lives. Escaping to some sort of sanctuary, where you’re safe, loved, nurtured, and cherish for the tired soul that you feel, you are. You may be fortunate enough to have the means to take a trip to an exotic location, the ability to visit with someone you love for a time, or where ever it is that you feel would be sanctuary. The problem is, that it only works for a moment, and not for the long term.
Like Rumi, I’m here to tell you that “The Sanctuary” that you’re looking for, IS inside of you. If you’re not feeling it, then that should be your main goal, to get yourself to that place. Take care of yourself! Love, Nurture, and Cherish the deserving soul that you are! Do what you feel you need to do to get you to that point. If you need it, go to that other sanctuary, and let some time pass in your healing. It may have taken you a long time to get where you are. It may take a while to get to where you need to go. But eventually, and hopefully sooner than later, you will find the peace from within. Go inward, sit still when you can, meditate or just keep your thoughts positive. Remember everything, no matter how small, that you’re grateful for in your life. Exercise, move your body, stretch. Start feeling yourself strong, and healthy, inside and out.
Start at whatever point you can, no matter how small, and take care of yourself! I can’t think of a more deserving soul than you… 😉
Just a thought…
