Just Being There


Just Being There

There is a strange sense of beauty and solemnity and communion in the gathering of silent thoughts. After awhile, they dissipate, convening into a hollow hall of silence. I fall into an unconditional acceptance of what is, a deep surrender to its mystery. I sit and wait and sense everything the way it is in that precise moment, and then…a peaceful knowing descends.
