in thread Storm in Stillness

In my experience even storms of pain have seeds of stillness, hope and healing within, provided we are willing to feel the pain and work it through. It is not for nothing that in the classic stages of grief, acceptance (note:not resignation) comes after depression and anger, not before. I'm sorry for whatever loss you or those close to you are going through or have gone through recently. There are certain sorts of wisdom one always hopes one's friends have no reason to know.

You might also find it interesting that one of the most prominent words for peace in Biblical Hebrew is "shalom" which is related to completeness and wholeness and also implies peace after a storm or battle. Stillness or calm, in the sense of an absence of tension, is an entirely different word (ragua). The two separate meanings persist to this day in modern Hebrew.

I love your signature quote by the way.
