Be Still...

There is a certain kind of beauty and peace only found in stillness and silence. We have all experienced it, but have we all contemplated it? Yes, we all understand the joys and magic in art forms such as dance and music, those simplicties that tickle our senses. But what if we take a moment to sit down and look into the stillness all around us. It is there, you just may not have noticed it. We know its there in the deepest hours of the night, when the world is quiet. If we can look into the sky, at the bright moon, what can we see? There is beauty in everything, even in the smallest grain of sand. All things, creatures, people are part of a much bigger picture. In life there is so much to take in. But we get so caught up in the rush of life that we forget to stop and just enjoy the world. We think "do, do, do." Why not just stop and breathe? Absorb what we see, hear and feel? We can become the background. What do we see? We can find all aspects of life within ourselves. That silence, that stillness. We can cultivate that, bring it from the inside, out. We have so much potential and don't even know it.
