Meditative Moment with Brother David Steindl-Rast
MEDITATIVE MOMENTS with Brother David Steindl-Rast from Milos Savic on Vimeo.
Deep stillness is a spaciousness within, an openness to what is. In silent meditation, one enters into the present moment which is the only transcendent moment, Kairos, the moment of all possibility; a moment in time and transcendent of time, in which all that is may come together as one in a vast expansive consciousness.
“Our own interiority, including our reflective self-awareness, is just as much part of the natural world as plants, mountains, and oceans. In human beings the self transforming universe has now become luminously conscious of itself. This interior vein of consciousness running throughout cosmic history, and within the dramatic depths of life, allows us to realize the Spirit of God as essence of Life. Our inner knowing, this intuition leads us to realization of the risen Christ, consciousness of the cosmos, gathering all matter and mind into his Eucharistic body.” 1
May there be a moment of stillness in your busyness today, so that you may mindfully enter into the process of living breathing Life, and realize the precious beauty of your being and of all those with whom you share the Eucharistic Body of Christ.
May you dwell in Love’s spaciousness, Peggy
