Question: SIT IN TOTAL STILLNESS FOR FIVE MINUTES TODAY. HOW DOES IT FEEL?
Transcript of Video:
Most people are very familiar with the story of Creation in the Book of Genesis: how God created the world in seven days. I’m always struck that, at the end of the act of Creation God stops and God creates the Sabbath. And what’s particularly interesting is of all the things that God creates, the one thing that he calls holy is the Sabbath. So I think stopping is an essential part of the way that we mirror the divine nature and the divine life within us. And if we don’t stop, we are depriving ourselves of the blessings of the one thing that God called Holy. So we should just stop.
