As I begin to write this article, I witness the scene: Doors slamming around me, little voices laughing, yelling and singing, foot steps pounding, constant chattering, never ending streams of questions and demands; “where’s the paper?”, “I’m hungry, can we eat?”, “Muummm, I need you…..”
What about peace and silence and a little time to think? Where’s the balance that I am sure used to be more accessible before motherhood? Even for those who seem to be born into motherhood, this powerful, emotional, heart-opening, heart-wrenching, absolutely challenging world of motherhood seems like a boat caught in never ending waves, being tossed far away from the distant memory of peace, quiet and balance.
My inspiration, Swami Satyananda says,
“There is no silence in the Himalayas and there is no noise in the city, both are within you.”
