Occasionally I'll get a brief experience of stopping and finding stillness but it does not last very long. I am reminded of a monk named Thomas Keating who said: "God's first language is silence. All else is a poor translation." Being silent can at times help one be still as being still can help one be silent. when I realized I know very little, I believe I am spiritual and simultaneously mundane. I have changed to the point where I now think the mundane is often spiritual/divine. Trying to be spiritual may at times cause me to not see that we are already spiritual even while being mundane. This can be done without trying. For me the word peace is more primitive than happiness and I think I can be peaceful while not being always happy.. Being at ease is being peaceful. Thank you for the opportunity to respond. Warm and kind regards to everyone and may all beings be at ease.
