I was mulling over just what it was I was trying to articulate for today's post, and while processing, I read this by my friend, Kario. That's what I'm trying to say: few things are harder, or more rewarding, than sitting in silence with yourself.
Look around, we're all numbing ourselves with food, alcohol, work, gambling, shopping, Facebook, busyness, you-name-it. So few people know how to just "be." When you come across one of them it's noteworthy. I'm working on being one of those people - the be-ers of this world, after 49 years of being a major do-er.
It is hard. But it's getting easier. Not there yet. Not even close to there yet. But I've tasted the nectar of the stillness gods, and it is sweet.
