Steadfast, Non-Moving, Silent

Bernadette Roberts

"In time I learned to ignore my roving mind and focus instead on the silent will, which, by contrast to the mind, was steadfast, non-moving, silent, glued to the Divine as to the stillpoint of being.  It was obvious that my true oneness with God was not mental, not dependent upon whether or not I could think of Him.  Rather, it was my will that was the silent energy center of my being that, like an umbilical cord, was somehow attached to the Divine."
