When We Are Still

“So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.” – T. S. Eliot

When we are still . . . our senses awaken to the beauty that remains even when we can’t see, hear, feel, taste and breath through the noise and distractions that can overcome and distort the truth.

We hear the birds singing in harmony;
We feel the soft breeze of a Spring morn;
We see the hues in the sky;
We breath in and absorb the fragrance of flowers bloom;
We empathize instead of judge others because we realize we are in this life together and merely want to be seen, accepted and loved;
Time stands still because we live and appreciate the depth and brevity of each moment.

Be still.

“I drank the silence of God from a spring in the woods.” – Georg Trakl

  1. I love this post! My theme with my classes this month is being grounded, and I think that what you say in this post about being still really ties together nicely with that…you have to be still in mind, body and spirit in order to be grounded. I hope you don’t mind, but I would love to share this post with my readers.

  3. I love this post — in Ecstatic dance — Stillness is the last wave — and you can only reach it through dancing into its light.

  4. In the Stillness of Willow Hill #

    Being still is one of the most valuable lessons we can learn in life. Not easy to do in our fast paced society……but so worth it. It’s so sad that we have succumbed to the over-scheduled lifestyle for our children, for they too benefit from stillness.
