The Habit of Stillness in the organized chaos of our lives Pausing to strengthen by centering

Finding the silent center of beauty

Knowing that auspicious thoughts rise from reflection, relaxed
consciousness, attentive listening to the heart of the universe

Possessing these emotions by choice

Finding the heavens there, in the silent center.
