Guess the cusp of the next big market trend that children as well as adults are seeking. The answer might surprise you…
“Stillness” is something that is beginning to be generally recognized as essential. Pico Iyer shares a number of such examples in his recent opinion piece, The Joy of Quiet, for the New York Times. We live with a developed anxiety of keeping up with 24/7 media and information vehicles (facebook, twitter, etc) – “More ways to communicate with less and less to say.” This has caused people world wide to discover that giving time to quiet or solitude results in more substantial contributions on the job and in relationships as well as better health.
For me, a regular pause of prayer has often found a personal peace that is independent of circumstances. The clarity this brings has led to a sense of well being and direction for what to do – or write – next.
