As spiritual searchers we need to become freer and freer of the attachment to our own smallness in which we get occupied with me-me-me. Pondering on large ideas or standing in front of things which remind us of a vast scale can free us from acquisitiveness and competitiveness and from our likes and dislikes. If we sit with an increasing stillness of the body, and attune our mind to the sky or to the ocean or to the myriad stars at night, or any other indicators of vastness, the mind gradually stills and the heart is filled with quiet joy. Also recalling our own experiences in which we acted generously or with compassion for the simple delight of it without expectation of any gain can give us more confidence in the existence of a deeper goodness from which we may deviate.Ravi Ravindra
Just for today
Hold stillness inside you
While the world pulses and races and dances a crazy dance
Be aware of your breathing
Consciously slow yourself
And be filled with peace
It only takes a moment
And you can be in stillness
Like a Mountain
Strong, stable, eternal
Life going on all around you
With you the silent witness
There is an expansiveness in silence
And a great calm.
Today my wish for you is moments of stillness to clarify and illuminate your day.
Today my wish for you is peace in your heart.
Thinking of you and sending love,
