You will find in the quiet times I am with you. I am always with you, but many times you do not always acknowledge or perceive my presence, activity, or involvement. But in the times when you quiet your mind, your heart, and your activity, you will find me. When you look for me you will find me, but you will also begin to find me when you are not looking for me too. For as you sit with me in the silence of inactivity you will become sensitive to my presence and will begin to perceive me in ways and times you did not previously (1).
In your sensitivity you will discover I am with you always, especially in the times when you presume I am not. You will find I delight in you and with you, particularly in the times you feel I do not. You will discover I have the answers you cannot find, and that I am happy and even eager to share them with you, especially in the times when you are not so desperately looking for them (2).
Understand I am not hiding myself from you when you are preoccupied with all your busyness. I am not unavailable, absent, or unengaged even though it may seem this way to you. As you continue to sit with me, and come to familiarize yourself with my presence and my fragrance, you will uncover activity and involvement you did not notice previously.
Dismantle your fears and apprehensions and come and sit with me in the quiet of the evening. Sit with me in calmness and stillness and allow me to guide you into the unknown realms you have not yet explored nor encountered. Allow me to speak with whispers. Allow the subtly and nuance of my engagement with your heart inspire you as I feed you from the wealth of delicacies from my table. For in me you will find all manner of delights, adventure, and treasure. In me you will encounter truth and adjustment. In me you will experience peace and joy, and will do so without stress, expense, or striving (3).
So dismantle the busyness of your heart and mind, and allow my spirit to slowly and gently engage with you. For you will come to see we are one, bonded together, having nothing separating us whatsoever.
