Recalling a meditative chant

I don’t know where this stuff comes from, things that wander into my head and won’t leave.

On this 4th of July, I am – for some reason –  recalling a meditative chant on Psalm 46:10, “Be still, and know that I am God!”

 Be still, and know that I am God

Be still, and know that I am

Be still, and know

Be still

Repeating the whole sequence about three times works wonders. Stillness and safety within the group becomes very present and most helpful.
