A good one

We just got back from an out of town trip and before I even recount our adventures, I suddenly felt an overpowering wave of gratefulness. So I end tonight with thoughts and thanks and hopes and prayers…

I complain often of how stillness is elusive but this weekend reminded me that my opportunities outweigh my perceived limitations. That I am in control and able while others are without a choice.

I worry about not having enough while others worry about not having any. This weekend reminded me to be thankful of challenging work as it is a means to not only making ends meet but living leisurely.

I pray to be grateful. I hope to not forget.

I hope to work hard. I pray to remember everyday.

I pray to be humbled. I hope to be good.


… that there is no need to obsess over a decision. God has more in store for us then we can ever predict, and what we fear are bad choices frequently turn out for the best, because our hidden aspirations know better where we are going than our rational minds.

Quote for the day!

When you’re with stillness, you merge on some level with everything around you. You can’t pin-point where it’s coming from. From inside? From outside? Where? It just is. It is just this moment of peace and stillness. This is what you should be experiencing in your meditation. When you become very good at it, you will have the stillness with you all the time. It doesn’t leave. It never leaves. It is constantly with you—a sense of being. A sense of completion. And a sense of silence. A level of peace is with you at all times.
