As time slows down, my mind is taken to a cherished place of tranquility by the mesmerizing presence of the incense. The scent permeates the room, quietly imbuing the space with warmth and calmness that relax the body and the mind. Away from the noise and distraction, the small ritual of lighting and meditating with an incense allures me to a place of quietude – an antidote to the stress and fear revolving the uncertainty. The change of pace from fast to slow strips away the burden of information overload and release the mind from overthinking , resulting in a peaceful simplicity. The purity of the mindful experience characterized by slowness and quietness is conducive to a balanced mindset, essential to the sense of well being. By creating a sanctuary in a simple form, one is getting close to the encounter of one’s inner light.
