Meditation is practiced in various forms the world over.
It's a cornerstone of New Age religions, but meditation of one style
or another can also be found in most of the major religions,
including Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism.
It stands to reason, then, that relieving stress
would pay off in better health, and it does.
Resting the mind has a profound effect on
brain activity, which results in a slower heart
rate, lower blood pressure, and a reduction in
stress hormones—and the nervous system
gets temporary relief. If meditating in the Lord
is practiced regularly, these beneficial changes
become relatively permanent.
Sometimes I just like to sit here silently with You.
You already know.
You already understand.
I don't have to say the right thing, or anything at all;
You accept me.
You see my thoughts as they form and dance.
Words could never aptly express them.
You could verbalize Your every thought perfectly,
Yet You sometimes choose silence too.
There's just something about being together,
Not having to say a thing,
Because we feel it‚ we sense it‚ we know it.
