stopping places

the grace of restfulness

a stopping place

We need stopping places
where we relax and rest
where we realize anew how easily
we get lost in doing

To stop is not merely a physical act
but an invitation to inner stillness
sensing nothing needs to be done
to be anything or to prove anything

for we are always, already
that we are

Stopping places remind us
who we are
before we do anything

We relearn
through this grace of restfulness
our natural essence of fulfillment

and

that we are not human doings
we are beings being with all other beings
in a communion
timeless and fathomless

When this aloneness inwardly is
welcomed, we welcome
our place in Life with all other beings

We find
even apart from, we cannot be separate from, so
in being alone, we discover the joy of all being al-one

rest & renewal
