…Choice…

November 29, 2017

“I am smiling at myself today.  There’s no wish left in this heart.  Or perhaps there is no heart left.  Free from all desire I sit quietly like Earth.  My silent cry echoes like thunder. Throughout the universe.  I am not worried about it.  I know it will be heard by no one. Except me.” ― Jalaluddin Mevlana Rumi

I used to think serenity only came from acceptance, that you had to concede to that in your life which is unsatisfying.  To be serene meant giving up.

“He who would be serene and pure needs but one thing, detachment.”― Meister Eckart

In that I may know what living in true harmony with oneself actually feels like, every winter I wait for the whales to return, so that I may feel their silent yet incredibly loud vibrations reverberate through me.  They are detached yet inextricably connected to all that is unalloyed.
Stillness is a choice….one we must make over and over again.  I have learned that I am more tranquil when I don’t give up, when I put forth my opinions, my wants, my needs…my beliefs, and trust in their validity.  There is no need to cry out loud, for the echo of my true being, if allowed to boom, will find a home.

K.K.
