Reminders for being still

Sometimes it is really difficult to sit down, be still, and let our thoughts settle. Everything around us feels more important, urgent, and vital. Reminding ourselves that being still will actually open up space for a joy that is lasting can help us to refrain from buying into constant distraction. It allows us to actually see this constant distraction as a false and temporary idol of the love we really are and then really experience the love it is calling out for.
