Lessons within Stillness

Updated: Nov 11, 2023

Scripture: "And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect."

Romans 12: 2

“So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.”

T.S. Eliot

Music: "Still / Peace" Hillsong Worship

Message: Lessons within Stillness

Sometimes we seek out stillness... sometimes stillness drops upon us without invitation.

We may go through a time of stillness for so many reasons.

Learning to welcome it no matter the source, a true endeavor for us as humans.

In my times of quiet and stillness, watching animals is a form of meditation. Observing their activities, punctuated by stillness as they listen for prey, or as prey. I think of the battle they constantly wage, for food, for shelter, for life. And yet they often seem to be carefree and so accepting of their world. Maybe they are sharing a life lesson...

May you find peace and knowledge in stillness, whenever it may come.

“Within yourself is a stillness, a sanctuary to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself.”

Herman Hesse

"For all of us, the experience of our entanglement differs from day to day. Nevertheless, if you connect with the blessings of your surroundings—the stillness, the magic, and the power—maybe that feeling can stay with you and you can go into your day with it. Whatever it is you are doing, the magic, the sacredness, the expansiveness, the stillness, stays with you."

Pema Chodron
