Do Not Resist

The Hebrew word 'Sabbath' doesn't mean Sunday. It means Stop. In a culture that is always on the Go, how do you stay? How to stop and rest in eternal Presence?

This ever-changing creation arises and dissolves in boundless stillness. This ever-blossoming chaos appears and disappears in absolute silence. Just as a mirage shimmers in empty dessert air, the manifest world and the unmanifest silence seem to be opposite values: yet they are one and the same. 

Stillness pervades action, silence pervades the Word. The key to the unity is Non-Resistance. Non-Resistance melts noise into silence, and chaos into stillness.
