STOPPING PLACES

 

We need stopping places

where we relax and rest

where we realize anew how easily

we get lost in doing

 

To stop is not merely a physical act

but an invitation to inner stillness

sensing nothing needs to be done

to be anything or to prove anything

 

for we are always, already

that we are

 

Stopping places remind us

who we are

before we do anything

 

We relearn

through this grace of restfulness

our natural essence of fulfillment

 

and

 

that we are not human doings

we are beings being with all other beings

in a communion

timeless and fathomless

 

When this aloneness inwardly is

welcomed, we welcome

our place in Life with all other beings

 

We find

even apart from, we cannot be separate from, so

in being alone, we discover the joy of all being al-one
