As many of you know, the science has demonstrated how helpful meditation is for all of us. However, meditation can also be a spiritual practice for us that leads to a deeper and more meaningful life. When we are able to quiet the mind and connect to stillness, we are able to connect to ourselves. Eckhart Tolle says, "Stillness is the language God speaks, and everything else is a bad translation."

Connecting into stillness allows us to connect with the divine/universe/God. Whether you are comfortable with the terms “Christ within” or “Buddha nature,” it is referencing the same idea; the divine is within each of us. We can move pass the physical body, ego, personality, and emotional body and really get in touch with our true essence.

By taking the time to connect to stillness, we can move through the world with more meaning and beauty.
