Tranquility’s Source

Peace Within

When we are unable to find tranquility within ourselves, it is useless to seek it elsewhere.

  1. very true. today when I was meditating (or at least trying to), I could literally feel all the tension being pulled out through my fingers. It calms me so much.

    • Dear Sonya,

      Thank you for you visit and comments. It is an odd experience how tension resides, and leaves, this body.

      All good wishes,

      robert

    • Dear Anjali,

      Just this morning, I came across some lines from a ghazal that reminded me of what you said here. These lines are attributed to Khwaja Mo’inuddin Chishti:

      Hell turns into heaven when you are with the Friend,
      But when you are not with Him, paradise becomes hell.

      All good wishes,

      robert

      • That is so true Robert! And thank you so much for thinking about me – when you came across such beautiful, spiritual lines of the great Khwaja!
