Today I went for a little hike in one of our local wilderness areas.
I didn't make it too far in on the trail that sidles along the river, because I was mesmerized by the noise and speed of the water.
After deciding to just sit and think for a bit, I realized that the silent, stationary snow I was sitting on was what was generating the surging river; the water was being fed by the melt.
It struck me just how powerful stillness is, and how we all need it to recharge.
Stillness leads to movement.
Stillness leads to strength.
