Scripture tells us to “Be still and know that I Am near.” The ability to BE STILL is one of the most powerful and profound abillities we acquire along the road to enlightenment. Everyone is benefited by those who remain calm in the face of chaos. When all around is turmoil, those who remain calm are the ones who stabalize any situation. We are all drawn to those who have developed the ability to tap into the center of their being and BE STILL.
Life is full of challenges appearing to be critical. Deadlines, appointments, accidents, commitments, monetary responsibilities, politics and family disputes all parade before us pretending to be all important. But when we look at them from a deep perspective, from a point of realizing the eternal we sort through these imposters and see what is truly important. As we develop our ability to BE STILL our days become peaceful. We respond to daily challenges using the best of our abilities and accomplish more. We teach by example the power in the present moment. BE STILL and allow yourself access to the present moment. Fear is a theif that robs you of the present moment. BE STILL and know God is with you always in all ways.
Herman Melville in his book Moby Dick wrote: “For as this appalling ocean surrounds the verdant land, so in the soul of man there lies one insular Tahiti, full of peace and joy, but encompassed by all of the horrors of the half-lived life.”
BE STILL and know within you is an island of peace and joy. Tap into it and enrich you life.
