Letting go of the race

Stand still, and allow the strange, deadly restlessness of our tragic age to fall away like the worn-out, dusty cloak that it is – a cloak that was once considered beautiful. The restlessness was considered the magic carpet of tomorrow, but now in reality we see it for what it is: a running away from oneself, a turning from that journey inward that all  must undertake to meet God dwelling within the depths of their souls.

Stand still, and look deep into the motivations of life.
