I learned today the merit of telling somebody in difficult and painful circumstances that all I could do was sit still. At the time of my response I felt at a bit of a loss as to what to say truthfully and for the best. That I was sitting still was _really_ all I could come up with. It turns out that hit the spot. Thankfully.
This post is for all those who find themselves in an unhappy and challenging place. Sometimes sitting still and simply that, is enough to do Great Good. That’s for oneself and for others. And getting up from the meditation bench, an alone place just for one, and walking into the next thing is quite often enough too. The way may not be clear however keeping ones feet moving is significant.
