Stand still

“Stand still. The trees ahead and bushes beside you
Are not lost. Wherever you are is called Here…

If what a tree or a bush does is lost on you,
You are surely lost. Stand still. The forest knows
Where you are. You must let it find you.” ~ David Wagoner

Where are you?

Marianne Hieb refers to Gerald May as saying we use building words rather than organic growing words…We set to fix ourselves. We build character and hammer out difficulties. This type of vocabulary gives the false impression that we can, indeed, construct ourselves through the force of our own wills.”

In God you come up against something which is in every respect immeasurably superior to yourself. Unless you know God as that and, therefore, know yourself as nothing in comparison, you do not know God at all. ~ C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity.

How do you know God?
