There is no greater mystery
than the Stillness within you.
Sometimes you feel its presence when you look in wonder at the rising sun,
or gaze in awe as a delicate butterfly settles gently on the petal of a flower.
When the mind is very quiet and attentive, this vast Stillness may appear.
It has always been your beloved companion
even though you are unaware of it.
A Monarch butterfly travels thousands of miles in its migration each year and gives birth to a new generation. Its delicate wings carry it through countless obstacles on its long and perilous journey. Some die on the way, and like us, the tiny butterfly goes back to its Source.
The rising sun is a call to begin the day in the present moment; in the eternal Now; To be free of time and the burden of my conditioned mind. The beauty of the natural world can transport me into the timeless if I would just pay attention to it; the splendor of the universe is within me.
