HIGHLIGHTS OF LAST SUNDAY'S LESSON

 

Overheard on Sunday, March 26, 2017

Know

 

 

Look at a tree, a flower, a plant. Let your awareness rest upon it. How still they are, how deeply rooted in Being. Allow nature to teach you stillness.
Ekhart Tolle in Stillness Speaks


 

Dear Friends,

 

This Sunday morning, we explored the theme of knowing. Jesus reminded us to “be still and know.” This kind of “knowing” implies a deep understanding. Recall the story of Solomon falling asleep and God coming to him in a dream. God offered him anything he desired. Solomon asked for an understanding heart. What would you ask for, if you could have anything you desired? An understanding heart touches the hidden wisdom that is deep within us.

Cultivating this deep knowing requires “pausing.” Thomas Moore speaks of pausing long enough to let our deeper thoughts and impressions to sink deeply into our hearts and then into our soul. He encourages what we are calling “micro-mystical-moments.” The natural world is a good stimulus for mystical experiences. These are moments when we are swept away and sense the unity of everything. Many of us feel this sense of awe and connection when we pause to watch a sunset, when we walk in a forest or look out across the mountains.

This week, I encourage you to “notice” at a deeper level the gifts that come your way in “micro-mystical-moments.” Savor them, let them be a refuge for you. Absorb them, make them a part of you. They will restore your soul.

 

Be still, be yourself, be where life is: Here and Now.

Eckhart Tolle, Stillness Speaks
