Stillness

We need to create time for stillness,
carving places in our daily schedules
for contemplation, meditation or prayer.

We need to be less concerned
with doing so many things,
and instead develop
our innate capacity for simply being –
being fully present to
the integrity and capacity of each moment.

More often than not,
I seem to be far from God.
But in those moments,
frequent as they are,
God is near.
So near, I do not have to struggle to find God,
for God is already seeking me,
rushing to embrace me.
But it is only in stillness
that I can sense God’s movement,
God’s presence.

Whether we are aware of it or not,
God’s love is continually coursing
through our very veins.

Prayer cleanses your heart
and separates you
from the transitory allurements of the world.
