“We choose to be stationary or we choose to be still.
“The stationary pilgrim always turns his head around to see what was or what could have been. He loses focus on the potential and possibility of now. So he stays in the position of inaction because he can’t imagine another way. Stationary is frail-boned, a faint pulse.
“The still pilgrim is engaged in a fully-realized act of re-imagination. She’s looking down the barrel of the possible — of the moment — and lives by keenly seeing the potential of an enlarging world. She’s a revelator ordaining — with courage — an all-surpassing peace. Stillness has clarity in its bloodstream and intention in its heart.”
~Dave Harrity, “Motion,” Making Manifest: On Faith, Creativity, and the Kingdom at Hand
Would you say tend more toward the stationary or the still?
In the stillness,
Welcome to the Still Saturday Community where we pause after a busy week, move in quiet pilgrimage, maybe linger a while in some still place, and soak in the beauty of images and reflect on the depth of sparse words. We’d love for you to join us. Grab the button and link up below. We all love to hear if something especially speaks to your heart, but please don’t feel pressured to comment. Simply take some time to gaze long and drink deep.
