Learning to sit still for can be a bit of a challenge. Not necessarily because of time, as many say, rather because the silence of stillness can be eery. In this quiet we hear our thoughts loud. We feel our hurt a little more. And in turn we want it to go away.
Ultimately, the stillness makes us uncomfortable.
Yet in that uncomfortabilty, our heart speaks to us. The answers we’ve been searching for become known. And we are able to hear beyond the noise we use to drown out the voice of LOVE.
May we be still and learn to enjoy the beauty of silence; the fullness of quietude because that is where the goodness lies.
Start with 60 seconds. Allow yourself to relax and breathe. Nothing too serious or overwhelming, just gentle time with you. Give yourself multiple moments throughout the day — allowing yourself to reset, renew, restore.
Embrace the times during the day when you are met with silence, it is what you need at that time, see it as a gift and don’t try to fill it with noise.
It is okay for your goal to be 60 seconds instead of 60 minutes, as Eckhart Tolle says, “One conscious breath in and out is a meditation” — there is not a set length of time to be still. Do what works for you and meet you where you are with LOVE and GRACE.
