"Let the beauty we love be what we do." ~ Rumi
Greatly inspired by our dear friend Rumi, this beautiful being called "blog" was born today at precisely 1:08 pm in gorgeous rainy Vancouver... seems like quite a miracle. Such JOY! The LOVE of connecting deeply in Stillness with what appears to be "others" is the fertile ground in which this seed is planted.
Connecting deeply... deeply connected. That's all of us... well, what appears to be us on the surface ~ many separate individuals. Beneath the surface though, we all are completely interconnected. Connected in this fertile ground of Stillness ~ as Stillness itself.
Many of us are realizing this Stillness as ourselves... knowing this Stillness directly and are living as this. Which really means, it is living itself through what appears to be us. Well, it's always been doing that anyways, the only difference is that now it is known consciously. Truly known... the knowing of the heart... completely different from any knowledge that comes from the head. Stillness is who we are... who we always have been. Perfect Stillness. Perfecly Still. Even before a thought about who we are... or before anything or anyone tries to tell us who we are... we already are. Isn't that amazing?!
Initially, it may seem as if this Stillness is known only as glimpses that appear from beneath the surface of existence... as if it's playing a game of hide and seek. And then as Stillness appears to shine through more and more, it is realized that all there is is Stillness! This is what has always been here. The surface and beneath the surface seem to change places... everything gets turned upside down... this fertile ground of Stillness takes over. What was only known intermittently is now known continuously... it doesn't go anywhere.
What happens when you stop and notice this Stillness? Notice what is already still.
