Stillness grants the opportunity to be in touch with one's soul, which is the real self. And since my soul is an extension of God, in being in touch with my soul, I am in union with God. And since God incarnates into all that is, in stillness I am in union with the cosmos. My saying that is a ripple effect in part of meditation, which is a ripple effect that I carry with me throughout my living and enhances my living. The experience of being in touch with my soul and beyond, which occurs in meditation, is sumptuous and has persuaded me to incorporate meditation into my life.
