“What’s your secret?” “It’s pretty simple, really. Every day I unplug for a few minutes,” she replied. Still confused, I said, “I’m not sure I understand what you mean. Sort of like when I unplug my headset?”
“That’s it exactly,” Isabel smiled. “When you unplug your headset, you disconnect from all the noise. The voices, the static — everything disappears. All you hear is peaceful silence. The same thing happens with our minds. They are filled with constantly whirling thoughts and feelings and endless chatter. I discovered that when I unplugged mentally, it all stopped. All I heard was silence. I felt calm and at peace.
“Here is the best part,” she whispered. “I have the power to go to that quiet place any time I want. I can do it anywhere. Sometimes I unplug mentally as I’m waiting in line at the grocery store. When the weather is nice, I go outside and take a few minutes to sit quietly and unplug.” She laughed, “I even unplugged the other day as I sat in my car as it was going through the car wash! So, you wanted to know my secret. Now you have it.”
