Be Still..

These beautiful words by T.S. Eliot always speak directly to my soul, and bring me stillness and peace when I find myself fighting against myself and the Universe; in vain attempts to control situations. I particulary gain comfort from the line ‘Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought’. Such a beautiful truth ๐Ÿ’™

I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hope
For hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love,
For love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith
But the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting.
Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought:
So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.

Peace

These beautiful words by T.S. Eliot always speak directly to my soul, and bring me peace when I’m feeling unsure of my path… or falling into despair. ๐Ÿ’™

I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hope
For hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love,
For love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith
But the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting.
Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought:
So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.
