The power of ‘QUIET TIME’ cannot be overemphasized.

In a world full of voices and noises, one cannot afford to go for long periods of time without having ‘Lone Time’ with oneself. Unfortunately, the opposite is true for the majority of people, which should not be the case.

Many people go through life without ‘understanding themselves for themselves;’ they are unaware of their horoscope, temperament, or even their true beliefs. These individuals are oblivious to their own abilities, limitations, and worth. As they go through life, they become victims of their own ignorance. They marry the wrong person, get into the wrong relationships, work for the wrong company, pursue the wrong career, abuse themselves with drugs, words, and so on, and in the end, they are frustrated and unfulfilled in life.
Psychiatrists have long recommended ‘quiet time’ to people who ‘appear physically healthy.’ These individuals may be having difficulties in their marriages, with themselves, or in their careers, and ‘Quiet Time’ is recommended to assist them in RECOLLECTING, REFLECTING, and RECOGNIZING the essence of life and the significance of whatever they are actually into.
