BE STILL

In the relentless hustle of modern life, stillness and meditation emerge as powerful tools for reclaiming our inner strength and tranquility. How many hours of the day is your mind preoccupied with your finances (or lack thereof), manging weight and staying healthy, rasing your children or having a happy life with your husband or wife? In the practice of meditation, we draw on the wisdom that ‘Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength’ (Proverbs 8:14), where stillness becomes a gateway to accessing the strength and clarity needed to navigate through life’s challenges with conviction and purpose. Reflecting on the teachings from the previous blog post on power, we find that true power can be significantly harnessed through the practice of stillness. Meditation allows us to tap into our deeper selves, quieting the noise of the external world to reveal the potent energy that lies within. It is in these moments of quietude that we can access the Kether, or the crown in Kabbalistic teachings, which represents the highest attainable understanding and connection to the divine.

By regularly engaging in meditation, we not only soothe our minds but also empower ourselves to wield our inner power with greater intention and clarity. This practice is not just about finding peace but about preparing ourselves to effectively navigate through our daily challenges and dispel negativity and worry that invades our thoughts. The transformative power of stillness in our spiritual journey can be profoundly understood through Psalms 46:10, ‘Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth’. In this scripture, we are instructed to pause and reconnect with The Creator amidst life’s chaos. This cultivated tranquility can be used to make decisions that are rooted in wisdom and self-awareness. As we delve deeper into stillness, we unlock the gates to a more profound understanding of ourselves and our place in the universe, enhancing every aspect of our lives with the strength of calmness.
