be at rest…

When you feel overwhelmed and busy, remember that you are not powerless. When your mind rests, the world also rests.

~

Haemin Sunim

we can easily underestimate the power of stillness, of silence, of calm. in a world increasing in speed, in a society and culture where attainment, acquisition, accomplishment, and consumption are praised and prized, a restful, still and calm mind is all the more powerful in bringing peace to ourselves and to the world. it is the embodiment of generosity and hospitality, of coming home to the present moment. be the calm, the stillness, the peace the world seeks.
