“Be still and God is with you. Be still, and you are never alone.” says Donald L. Hicks. Whether we perceive God as a creator who pays us special attention or whether we relate to ‘god’ or “the divine” as shorthand for some other, hard-to-express truth, the insight remains the same: There is something worth paying attention to, something already connected to us, and in that awareness lies a path that can satisfy a deep longing within us. The path is stillness, the experience is meeting the mystery, and the reward is a sustained sense of connection and inner peace. If you are willing to share your own story of travelling on this path, please let Michael know.
