Awakening

Be Still and know that I Am God.  - Psalm 46:10

"Stillness is the language of God. Everything else is just a bad translation." - Eckhart Tolle

Awakening
He speaks to me through stillness.
His voice not heard but felt.
A power of oneness flowing through me.
Living in the NOW, that is my gift.

This "now" has no room for the past
nor the future.
It has no room for guilt or should haves.
This now has the power to consume all the sadness....
all the brokenness.
Until it withers under the sun.
The smallest speck of light can now swallow up
galaxies of darkness.



"To become rooted in the aliveness and fullness of the present -that is to lead a spiritual life." - Eckhart Tolle
