The practice of meditation is a personal ongoing journey that takes me down a path to the reliance of my own awareness. Sometimes, however, I may feel that nothing has been achieved, apart from the art of the practice of just being in an inner place to reflect.

The sanctuary of stillness
when the feral world runs wild.
Inhale, accept, exhale, be free;
body still, body quiet:
take these precious moments
relax in the sanctuary of being.

  1. "The sanctuary of being...." the most crucial sanctuary of all. This was wonderful to read and contemplate, Julian. Thank you.

  2. Ah yes, the 'sanctuary of being.' Such a simple concept, but so deep!

  3. "...the sanctuary of being...". Love this!

  4. How important it is to take time out and meditate on the world and our place in it. Sadly there are so many distractions that keep us from doing that.

  5. The inner meditative sanctuary is as important as the secure abode.Nice poem.

  6. Very good a sanctuary of stillness If we just could accept as is. Nice poem

  7. "take these precious moments / relax in the sanctuary of being."...And to find the final home within, the best sanctuary. But the journey is the most difficult with a cacophonous mind :)​

  8. You remind me that I do not take the time to be be still, and listen to my inner voice; leave my mind open to inner peace. Thanks for the reminder!
