The little child within us that often felt unsafe in the world growing up, wanders around looking for shelter even as an adult.
It rarely occurs to us that such a place is ourselves.
If we don’t learn to trust the quiet emptiness that we are made of, we spend our life hoping to be welcomed into a place to call home.
A place where we can feel at peace and nurtured, away from a world often too big and unforgiving.
Dear Friend, if you are that child, take a rest right now.
Take your younger self by hand and lead it into the most silent part of you.
It will be ever so scared at first.
So lost within that vastness we all come from, but we rarely allow ourselves to go back to.
The more you will visit, the more that child will stop fidgeting, until it can just rest and be.
That day, you become you own refuge.
