Finding Stillness 10/31/2011
Be still long enough, I thought, and the trees would take no notice of me and continue whatever it is they were doing or saying before I happened upon them. -PL Travers, author of Mary Poppins
Isn't that pure poetry? Ever time I read it over [and over] I find my stillness.
How often in life do we take time to stop and observe what is going on around us? I'm not just talking about people watching. I mean nature watching, I mean world watching, I mean wind watching.
Being so still and observant. So quiet and observant, that not even the grass you are sitting on notices you are there.
How often do we take the time to stop and just be?
Don't you wonder what lives in that moment, that heartbeat of undisturbed perfection? That breath of oh-so-fleating existence lingering at our finger tips and then whisp, gone.
Don't you wonder?
I'll tell you what's there. I've only recently been visiting this place more often. In that moment. In this moment lives a swirling sweetness so Divine that even the Angels can't resist it. In this moment there are mounds of greatness flooding over your being, constantly.
In this moment. There lives what's calling. Are you listening?
We come to understand the irony that we can experience progress even while standing still, that going inward can be going forward. - Gregg Levoy, Callings
