Coming to rest

Coming to rest isn’t the same as switching off. It’s not zoning out and being passive.

Instead, it’s probably the place where we become most fully alive. Because we’re not striving.

Without rest, we are simply consuming calories to keep going.

As I wandered around the valley this morning I see a place at rest, bursting with life.

Paradox? Probably.

But we are getting used to a different way of looking at things.
