Silver-Gilded Waves

DSC_0004When you are seeking to step into the
deep end of the pool
where silence reigns,
the same rules apply for adults and children. Don’t hold your breath, grimace, or freeze all movement. Just relax and breathe. In and out. Slow and deep. Let the silver-gilded, healing waves roll over you until the outside din is muffled in the weight of calming waters. If you let the waves of quiet solitude wash over you again and again, the inward noise that demands answers disappears too, dropping like stone to the bottom of the silent pool.

Now you are gliding lightly and effortlessly in quiet, mending stillness. Just sit or lay or roll and absorb. You will understand, “Be still and know that I am God.” Drink deeply and fill your ladle to overflowing. A new revelation of His face–his eyes and smile, hands and heart–is all you need to overcome the demanding chaos down at the shallow end of life.
