According to Ajahn Brahm, everyone deserves a 'retreat' - to pause mentally and physically. Retreating from the busyness of life leads to moments of silence, peace and contentment. This in turns helps to instill qualities that make one’s life more meaningful and fulfilled.
To quote from Ajahn’s book, Opening The Door of Your Heart,
“Grant yourself a moment of peace
and you will understand
how foolishly you have scurried about."
So plan for yourself a retreat today.
