It is a uniquely pleasurable sensation to observe “daytime” things under the darkness and quiet of night. There is something deeply peaceful and reassuring about seeing a place that is usually filled with noise, activity, people, and words, and rather seeing it in a state of silence and calm, lacking nothing, existing complete and beautiful in the perfection of its stillness.
“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.”
— Henry David Thoreau
“The more one meditates upon good thoughts, the better will be one’s world and the world at large.”
“The most basic work for peace is to return to ourselves and to create harmony among the elements within us — our feelings, our perceptions, and our mental states. That is why the practice of meditation, looking deeply, is so important.”
— Thich Nhat Hanh
