When You Are Still

A few days ago, my 4-year-old grandson, Helaman said something extraordinary!   He walked up to his mother while I was near and said, “Mom, did you know that when you’re still, you can feel stuff?” (This was a 4-year-old boy whose non-stop running is one of his defining characteristics). She was somewhat puzzled and asked, “You mean like the wind?”   He then said, “No, like the stuff you feel in your body!”   Later, I cornered him and asked, “Helaman, what is it you feel in your body, – when you’re still?”   He matter-of-factly answered, “My heartbeat. And GOD!”

When we can be still enough to listen and feel our heartbeat and breath, we slow our busy minds down to the point that we can feel the spirit within us. Jesus said “…the kingdom of God is within you.” (Luke 17:21) We just need to slow down in order to feel it; to feel the stuff of God. {Continue Reading at Meridian}
