on the holiness of a quiet moment
There's a way of relaxing into our center, letting other people have their say, knowing our being is even more radiant at times when we're in a space of not-doing. When the ego steps back, the power of God steps forward. Too often we feel we're invisible unless we're making the cool comment, doing this or doing that. But we're so much more powerful when grounded in silence. Taking a deep breath, knowing that what we don't say can be as powerful as what we do say, thinking deeply about something before making a response - such actions leave room for the spirit to flow, to harmonize our circumstances and move them in a more positive direction. How many times have we felt we've blown it simply by talking when we later wish we hadn't, or by showing off when we could have just sat there and seemed intriguing?
God's spirit wiil always reveal the truth to us if we simply don't block His guidance. And we block it by talking first, attitudinally walking ahead of truth. this happens when we push too hard, trying frantically to make things happen, or keep things from happening, because we lack faith in an invisible order of things. That is why a holy instant matters; it is a moment of quiet when the spirit enters and makes right all things.
