"I love that moment. When you’re on a long car ride, or listening to music, or reading. And you completely zone out. You forget your troubles, and everyone around you. You’re focused on that one thing, and that one thing only. You’re content, and everything seems peaceful."

(via whitebeyonce)

I think maybe everything seems peaceful because it is. There is peace in stillness. Beneath the frustrations and anxieties of the mind, that’s all there is. Simplicity. Your mind seems to “zone out” but really you’re just not clinging to the thoughts that pass by. And that’s where the peace is—always there, beneath it all.
