Stillness is counter-cultural. I’m not a lover of small talk. So after a recent workshop concluded this week and others began small talk I retreated to a quiet space in a dark empty room and sat near a window that let in the greatest amount of light. I sat there for two reasons. One, the room was a bit chilly so the sunlit space offered the most warmth. Two, I’m a lover of the spirituality of light, so I gravitate towards natural lighting. As I sat still in the light, in an otherwise dark room, I touched this lightness of being. When my traveling companion came to retrieve me from the room she said she saw my body but my head was infused with so much light that it looked like a blob of energy was resting on my shoulders. I said nothing. I didn’t see what she saw. I simply was sitting and giving thanks for the stillness. People who carry a certain stillness and peace have blessed my life. We offer the world what we are. Enter stillness. Be stillness. Be peace. Offer peace. Enjoy the journey.

Being still does not mean don’t move. It means move in peace.
E. A. Gardner
Be still, and know that I am God! I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth.
