"One's action ought to come out of an achieved stillness: not to be a mere rushing on."
~ DH Lawrence ~
It's easy to get lost to ourselves through addictive behaviors, ambition, obsession, over-responsibility, busy-ness, lust for power, resentment, and the myriad demands of our insatiable ego. To find ourselves again we have to stop and recover through stillness- through listening and sitting and self-reflection. We forget so easily what matters and what we are all about. We enslave ourselves to the tyranny of the urgent.
Let's not. Let's wake up fresh and start anew; mindfully, courageously, and with our hearts full of love.
I commit to stillness so that I can experience peace.
