Stillness, in motion

Our modern world demands our time, our energy,
our identity.

We navigate through our lives, 

   immersed into technology,
  demands that we subsume our individuality,
   to stay within the flow of traffic,

Too often we leave ourselves behind, 

  caught in the whirlpool, 
  losing sense of ourselves, 
  not just parts in the machine.

Slow down,

 recover who we are, 
 contemplate the breathing of a sleeping child, 
 wonder in the promise of the sleeping seed. 

"Muddy water,
let stand,
becomes clear.”
― Lao Tzu
