Quest for Mindfulness – 12

Psalm 42:8

By day the LORD commands his steadfast love,           

and at night his song is with me,           

a prayer to the God of my life.


There are times when our offering is not necessarily some tangible gift or helpful act, but rather simply a peaceful manner. If we are clear and present, if we are quiet and centered, then others may be nourished simply by our lack of agitation. The world is so agitated that to be in the presence of a single person who is at peace can feel remarkably healing, a great blessing. If we are still, others will come when they need to remember who they are.

 — Wayne Muller in How, Then, Shall We Live

I’m using the writings and encouragement of many people – including the daily common lectionary, this website, and this app, in my Quest for Mindfulness.
