“Come away to a deserted place all by yourself and rest a while.”
Calm. Clear. Clean.
Life can be messy and dirty.
Make it clear and clean.
Crowd out the bitterness and the anger
with thoughts of love and compassion.
Life can be noisy and distracting.
Wash out the din and the bedlam
with silence and the solitude.
Feel the flow of the clean clear water
Be refreshed by its soothing sound
In the silence and solitude
Transform the dirt and the noise
into the life-giving force of the gentle waves.
