The Journey Into the Place of Stillness

In his foreword to Search for Silence, by Elizabeth O’Connor, N. Gordon Cosby writes:

The one journey that ultimately matters is the journey into the place of stillness deep within one’s self. To reach that place is to be at home; to fail to reach it is to be forever restless. At the place of ‘central silence’ one’s own life and spirit are united with the life and Spirit of God. There the fire of God’s presence is experienced. The soul is immersed in love. The divine birth happens. We hear at last the living Word.

In Psalm 46 we read, “Be still and know I am God.”

In the stillness we know God. In the stillness we know ourselves. In the stillness we know who we are with God.

This is one journey we all can take. The journey into the place of stillness. And it is a journey that doesn’t require going very far.

Be still.
