Life is a near-entirety of ordinary moments. Can we inhabit an ordinary moment without pining for a less ordinary moment, filling it with content or using it as a means to a more stimulating moment?
“One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple.”
It’s not a building, the temple; it’s an ordinary moment.
Inner peace is not an achievement, the result of a process. It is the recognition NOW that fear is a falsehood, a hypnotic induction, a trick of the mind.
“Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists.”
A good man is neither satisfied with himself nor dissatisfied with himself.
Be still and know that I am God.
Be still and know that I am.
Be still and know.
All men do the best they can. If a man could do better, he would. But he can’t, so he doesn’t.
This is just how it is. Do not take it personally. It has nothing to do with you.
