Be still, O Soul, and know. Look unto the One and be illumined.pp. 369Our noisy years seem moments in the being of the eternal silence.William Wordsworth
What's the rush? If we are indeed immortal beings, do we not have forever to develop our skills and understanding. Perhaps the greatest skill we need is to rest in the exact place that we are and appreciate everything around us just as it is.
Out of such calm consideration often comes the deep understanding that so many of us are searching for. To fully appreciate the idea that we are immersed in a Divine Energy, we must pay strict attention to the minutest detail of life, just as it is, and not as it ought to be.
The evidence of God's love is neither far nor near. It simply is. It is in every element of our lives.
I open my awareness to life around me. Spirit within me recognizes Spirit all around me. I step out of the frantic pace to enjoy the quiet truth: I am one with all of Life. I give thanks for my life and all that is in it.
