I like the house in the morning–stillness. Sound of rain dripping outside. Clock ticking. Cat scratching. “Be still and know” rings so true. The troubled waters will naturally clear if the turbulence simply ceases.
And this is the time I practice the pause that refreshes. Just sitting. Allowing the Path to surround me in gratitude and brilliance. Soaking up the goodness of the now. Breathing in the peace of the here.
I crystalize this moment in my heart, my eyes and my limbs, taking it with me–a moveable altar. I bow to the Lotus Within.
