IN THE STILLNESS

In the Stillness

Silence is the space in which sound can exist.

Stillness is the space in which life comes to life.

If you listen only to the sounds, only to the noise, there is much that you will miss.

Listen also to the silence, to the space between the sounds.

Listen to the silence, and what you’ll hear are the limitless possibilities.

Experience the stillness, and you’ll discover how it feels to be fully aware.

It’s great when life is filled with sounds, colors, activity and excitement.

It’s even better when all that activity of living is grounded in real and meaningful purpose.

In silence you come to hear that meaning.

In stillness you come to know that purpose.

Make a place in each day for the peaceful stillness.

For it is the place where all that is possible takes shape.

— Ralph Marston

It is said that when you pray you are talking to God, and when you meditate God is talking to you.

In order to understand that phrase you must embrace silence.  Listen to the silence.  Not only quieting the mind but also finding a quiet spot for you to sit and be still.  Getting into the habit of doing this each day will help relieve daily stress, as well as give you a sense of peace and meaning.

Remember all your answers lie within you.  You just have to go within and be still.  They will come to you.

Namaste!
