Ruhe

The soul can only truly escape the turmoils of daily life when the heart has found a place where it can come to complete rest.

In these modern, fast-lived times of ours, now and then it is quite important to take a step back. Leaving the hustles and bustles far behind and rediscovering a degree of tranquility. Able to reorganize one’s own thoughts, forget the negativity and immerse oneself in an entirely new realm of thought. Either for oneself alone or together with one’s nearest and dearest. And to that end, finding a place where one can repose merely in order to be.

 

Hotel Schloss Lerchenhof in Hermagor, Carinthia
Schlosshotel Zamek Zdikov in Bohemian Forest

In the cozy parlor, with many small wooden chairs gathered around the large table. Where the whole family sits together, while outside the window the green of spring slowly but steadily supplants the white of wintertime.

Or on the beach in summer, sitting on a colorfully striped deck chair in the shade. Observing the children at play, while the small waves quietly murmur up against the shore. The smell of suntan oil and coconut lingering in the air.

Schlosshotel Mailberg in Lower Austria
Hotel Schloss Leonstain in Pörtschach, lake Wörthersee

In autumn, outside in the sunny garden. While the young cats boisterously taunt one another and the forests slowly turn brown. Perhaps even the first isolated leaves fluttering to the ground, the whole meadow soon to be covered by them.

In front of the big hearth where a warm fire blazes. Radiating a sense of utter comfort, you ensconced there in a rocking chair beneath a thick blanket. The warm tea still steaming and a good book in your hand, which you would much prefer never to stop reading.

Hotel Der Seehof in Goldegg

These places of repose are important for people. For those who remain constantly in motion, never capable of catching their breath, will ultimately find themselves compelled to pause. And in that case, not sitting, but lying may well be the only remedy.
