Sitting in an empty room. Silence, apart from the ticking of the clock on the wall. It’s getting dark outside, but you don’t have the energy to stand up and put the light on. you’re actually enjoying the silence and the fact that no-one knows you’re there – No-one knows you’re sitting in the corner of a darkening room, enjoying the silence and the darkness.

Emptiness. Silence. They seem to go so well together. You don’t want the emptiness and the silence to end.

But then you realise just how dark the room has become, and the clock has moved on an hour since you were last aware of the time. You realise you’ve a million and one things you should be doing instead of just sitting in the darkness.

Question: Is there anything wrong with spending some time by yourself, sitting in the darkness, emptying your mind of all your worries and stresses?

Answer: I would have to say it sounds like a great thing to do – As it would free us from distractions around us, while giving us time to relax and refocus on what’s important to us. I’d also suggest it would be a good time to spend some quality time with God.

We can so often these days be so busy focusing on all the things on the periphery of our life, rather than concentrating on the important stuff. So if you find yourself on your own, in a darkening room, enjoy the emptiness and the quietness.
