Go To The Desert

There is too much noise in the world.  We are constantly bombarded by sensory inputs with work, home life, electronic devices, and traffic.  Each of us needs to take some time each day and go to the desert.  I don’t mean the place where there is nothing but sand, but to a place of quiet and solitude.

Take some time each day, even if it is only 10 – 15 minutes, to get away from all the sensory inputs and enjoy the peace of silence.  Your first response is probably, “I don’t have time for that!”  Take the time, even if it means getting up a bit earlier or going to bed a bit later.  Turn off the electronics and sit in the peace found in the desert.  Say a prayer to St. Anthony to help you find the silence, you never know what you may hear when you are there.
