The Quest For Peace
May 21, 2016 Edition
My mind works differently from that of others. I know I live in a culture with a chronic fear of silence, where people play at full volume the same songs over and over again so they don't get bored.
There are people with no inner resources so they bombard themselves by outiside stimuli all the time. There are also some people, like me and Zen monks and Shinto priests, who need moments of peace and quiet. My time for myself is the source of my inner balance.
