Wednesday 14 December 2011 – Stillness & Silence

“The still mind of the sage is a mirror of heaven and earth – the glass of all things”

In our own personal stillness, we find the solutions to the challenges facing us.  We need to be willing to be quiet and turn our attention inward.  No information we need eludes us for long when we dwell in the stillness.

Our opportunities for growth are hidden within the challenges that attract our attention.  We need these if we are to contribute to the world.  No challenge is beyond our capabilities or strength, and every one can be handled with relative ease if we have sought the comfort of the stillness.

The  wisdom we admire in others is the birth-right of us all.  Each of us is a channel to full knowledge; any of us may be gifted with the wisdom to understand the present clearly, if we choose to exercise the commitment to move within ourselves – to the stillness, to the heart of all knowlegde of the past, the present, and the future”.

We have the answers we need, when we need them, if we turn within for them. Chuang Tzu.
