Rest and relaxation are of the utmost importance, but many of us would rather pretend to be busy rather than stopping to enjoy the moment.
Why do we do this to ourselves?
Is it that we live in a culture that demands that we are in a constant, never ending rush to get the next “best thing.” Or, is it that we’ve lost touch as a society with the power of stillness?
Stillness allows us to:
- Become one with God
- Listen to the thoughts of our heart
- Check our intentions
- Stand in gratitude
- Enjoy the moment
- Cultivate the power of joy
These powerful qualities can only be developed in stillness. There is a powerful scripture in the Bible that reads, “Be still, and know that I am God…” Today I challenge you to be still.
Are you afraid of stillness? Or, is it hard for you to get quiet and stop “doing,” and just start “being”?
