In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you.
— Deepak Chopra
The body must be nourished, physically, emotionally and spiritually. We’re spiritually starved in this culture-not underfed but undernourished.

Praying

It doesn't have to be the blue iris,  
it could be weeds in a vacant lot,  
or a few small stones;  
just pay attention, then patch
a few words together and don't try to make them elaborate, 
this isn't a contest
but the doorway into thanks, 
and a silence
in which another voice may speak.

Mary Oliver, from Thirst

Stillness is opening up one’s heart to find that deep silence within, in that secure place untouched by raging storms.
