into the stillness


There is a silence into which the world cannot intrude. 
There is an ancient peace you carry in your heart and have not lost. 
Lay down your arms and come without defense into the quiet place 
where Heaven's peace holds all things still at last.
 Lay down all thoughts of danger and of fear.

As you close your eyes, sink into the stillness.
 Let these periods of rest and respite reassure your mind
 that all its frantic fantasies were but dreams 
of fever that has passed away. 
Let it be still and thankfully accept its healing.
