Be Still

To be still and to know God takes practice. We can't be noisily moving about demanding our own way forward. To be still and observe where we are, where others are in relation to us, to see where God is present takes a lot of listening. A lot of careful observing, a lot of breaking our regular mold of hurrying and scattering. 

Being still you notice every movement, you begin to blend in with all that surrounds you. You make a peace with all that is staying that still. You see things in a new way and a different light. 

What if we were still more often? Moving into the shades of peace and surrender. Letting ourselves know and observe one another's burdens. Might we make wiser choices? Forgive mor readily? Seek peace more profoundly? Be still and then you may know.
