The Power of Stillness


What do you think of when you hear the word “power”? Electricity? Physical Strength? Control? All of these things are moving and aimed outward.

There is power in stillness, too.

A spinning plate can’t hold water, but a cup can. Jumping and screaming won’t entice a runaway pet to come to you. Sparks and lightning can’t show you the right direction…but the tiny magnet in a compass can.

Inviting, enticing, asking, attracting, magnetizing, welcoming, meditation, inner wisdom, a quiet mind: These  are powerful things too.
