In a world filled with disturbances, meditation can help calm the mind and help us to remain calm when the high tides of annoyances, obstacles, and other negative things arrive as they surely will…sometime. Sitting for just fifteen minutes a day regularly can help you find a quiet place; a place where you can let go and let the mind and body rest. A place where you can find inner peace to protect you from the storms of life. In the sailing world, a harbor of refuge is a place where ships in transit can find shelter from a storm. These are often man-made areas called jettys, enclosed areas along a featureless coastline where no nearby natural deep water harbors exist. We all need a safe harbor, somewhere where we can ride out the storm and storms are aplenty in life. Our safe harbors can be found in a number of places. Make sure you have some place to go.
