“We mostly spend [life] conjugating three verbs:
to Want, to Have and to Do.
Craving, clutching and fussing,
on the material, political, social,
emotional, intellectual, even on the religious plane,
we are kept in perpetual unrest:
forgetting that none of these verbs have any ultimate significance,
except so far as they are transcended by and included in,
the fundamental verb, to Be:
and that Being,
not wanting, having and doing,
is the essence of the spiritual life.”
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 be still together, to gaze long and drink deep.
