The pealing of church bells creates a feeling of peaceful nostalgia within. The clear, melodic tones transport us to ancient cathedrals, Gothic spires, and visions of a time when life was simple. Bells were the reigning technology of their day, communicating messages far and wide. They called believers to worship, rang out in celebration, and commemorated life events. The tolling of a bell invites us to momentarily pause and breathe, to rest in the moment, and perhaps to express gratitude for our blessings.

Isn’t the grocery store the perfect place to zone out? Grab a squeaky cart and make your way down the aisles. All around you people are going about their business, but you are alone with your thoughts. Families chatter, clerks stock the shelves, small children dart past you. At the front of the store you hear the electronic beep of items being scanned and the crinkle of plastic as they are bagged. Your private supermarket symphony carries you along, serene and undisturbed in its wake.
The hum of rubber on the road is soothing as the pavement rolls past. An occasional bump or two doesn’t detract from your meditative state. Instead, the random jolts focus your attention more deeply on your inward journey as the miles elapse. Remain present.
Let the sounds of everyday existence enfold you – the clink of cutlery, the squall of steam, lively conversation just beyond comprehension. The busy-ness of life surrounds you, but you rest in an oasis of calm. The hum of activity is a soothing backdrop for your thoughts. Vibrant energy inspires and boosts productivity. The bustle of life is a balm to your soul.
