Quiet Time

There are times not to answer the door, not to answer the phone, not to do all the things that are undone, but rather to find a place to rest in the silence.

You might find that place of silence on a cushion on the floor in front of a candle or in your favourite chair in the company of a cup of tea. You might find that place near a stream or a lake or right in your back yard. You might find that place of silence in the sanctuary of a church or a park or even in your parked car.

The important thing is that you look for and find a place of quiet, even for a just a few minutes during a busy day.

Because, no matter how well organized you are, how early you get up (or how late you stay up), you will never be able to do all that needs to be done.

And in the midst of that “undoneness”, in order to live a life that is satisfying, a life that feels as though you are on firmly on your path, it is essential to nurture your capacity for inner stillness.

In the quiet you can tune into a deep-down listening that is like a prayer for presence.

As you light the match, drink the cup of tea, listen to the stream or the wind rustling through the leaves or you rest in the company of a flower, say these words quietly to yourself. “I am here and all is well”.
