Today I was walking up the stairs and I paused;
As I get older I pause more and more;
I pause to find the stillness;
The stillness that sits behind everything.
All you have to do to find it is be still;
It’s always there, it feeds the universe;
Everything arises from and then returns to it;
It is the source that we need to be connected to.
When not connected we feel lonely and isolated;
We create a self to replace it;
Like the make believe friend we had as a child;
But there really is no self…..
There is a deep profound stillness;
And to find it, all we have to do is pause….
