I’ve never talked to anyone who thought that getting still was a bad idea or practice. But most people must think it is a good idea for someone else, because only a handful of people set aside the time to do it. Despite the struggle, once I arrive, the value of being still is worth far more than the challenge of all difficulties put together.

We call something priceless when it cannot be replaced. We call something priceless when its worth exceeds the value of money, because money cannot provide it. Stillness (the process of sitting quietly in my own room) has brought things into my life that could not have come in through any other door. These are things I possess, but they are not “possessions.” They could never be purchased and their value in my life is irreplaceable.

Here are three of them:

  1. A deeper knowledge of self
  2. A deeper knowledge of God
  3. A created center of calm
