A Journey To The Quiet Place

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “A Quiet Moment 112520bw” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

Simple pleasures are greatly valued. The stillness of the human spirit is a rare opportunity in today’s world. The outside voices call constantly to look here or listen to that. Flesh and blood are merely a vehicle for experience. We become what we see and hear. And there are so many voices that try to mold our spirits to fit their vision. Voices that command us to buy, voices that command us to speak or watch and listen so that we may become. Wear what they say and bear their marks. Add your voice to ours and be heard. They tell us to conform or be an outcast. The messages will hold us down if we let them. So I entered the park as escapee and not an outcast. And I found that as I allowed their voices to fade into echoes I felt somewhat lighter. I knelt down by the river and washed away all the marks they attempted to place in my heart. Behind this shield of silence my own thoughts return like an old friend in joyful reunion. We found the beach and allowed the small patterns of current in the river to mesmerize our attention. Reflections sway slightly to the motion of the water and the secret world welcomes the return of a lost child who wandered in the shadows of schedules and meetings. But if we can find that quiet place we will find our true self waiting to re-emerge. We remember that we are that spirit that’s having a human experience. There is strength in that quiet place.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
