The river was perfectly still…barely a ripple. Sitting on a bench overlooking the water, I was mesmerized by the reflection of the trees and stones and clouds and sky.
As my body quieted and my busy thoughts faded, the stillness took hold. And I remembered a quotation I had read, ‘We cannot see our reflection in running water. It’s only in still water that we can see.’
I appreciated the reminder to slow down and take time to reflect. To rest in a quiet space and listen for that inner voice…the voice of inspiration and guidance.
My heart was happy for those moments of peace and calm…and grateful to the beautiful river for the experience.
