The water on the lake is perfectly still this morning; not so much as a hint of movement. A mosaic blanket of frozen ice patches dot the lake as unfrozen water outlines the various patterns. I am reminded that life offers us such "outlining"; events that appear in various "sizes" and "shapes"; some are large and of massive proposition, while others are small slivers of experience. One would "think" the bigger ones have the greatest impact; when that, indeed, may not be true. Sometimes the smallest experience can have such a powerful impact that our life is changed forever. There is a saying, "It's not what you do, it's the energy in which you do it," that clearly depicts this Truth. When events happen in life (which it does on a regular basis), we have a choice as to how to respond. We can either react to life, or take actions accordingly after careful consideration of the options. In the first response, we are coming from our emotions, and while they are a part of being human, they are not the core of who we are. If we allow our emotions to direct our choices, more than likely, we will wish we had paused, counted to 10, and then made the decision. It is in the stillness of the infinite that sound decisions are made; ones that will carry the "energy" we wish to see more of into our lives. In the stillness of this moment, I am grateful for the wisdom to discern what I wish to see more of and then take action accordingly. I have learned that real power is only found in the stillness of the moment.
