distractions

Some places seem like they have more distractions than others.

More things competing for our attention, more things taking our focus away from being present in the moment.

We feel tempted to seek those places where that isn’t the case.

To escape. To get away.

But these things only distract us because we let them.

We always have the option to retreat inside ourselves, to turn our thoughts to our internal rational being.

We can go where we are incapable of being hindered, to where it is impossible for anyone or anything to reach us or affect us.

That choice is always available, no matter where we are.
