Have you ever needed to be still?
Not to be disturbed but be left all alone?
Some people are afraid to be alone.
They fear the quiet, that space.

Other’s revel in it.
In that quiet contemplative space much may occur.
Or nothing feels like it is happening.
It may be just dead silence.

What is good is to realize often when we would like to be still,
We just avoid it
Or when we are forced to be still, for example, like an illness,
We appreciate what we had.

A minute can feel like an hour.
And an hour can feel like a minute.
One of my favorite passages in the Bible is, "Be still and know that I am God."
This may make you quiver or melt you into the gentle stillness of it all.

The letters in still could mean, as I spell out the word:
S - Slowly
T - Time
I - Is
L - Leaving
L - Life

Perhaps it is my time to be still in the appreciation of all that is,
And all that is yet to be.
