A VAST AND HEALING CALM

New York Times columnist Bob Herbert recently suggested that we need to reduce the speed limit in our lives. He wrote that there's a tendency to lose sight of "those very special, mostly nonmaterial things that would fulfill us, give meaning to our lives, enlarge us, and enable us to more easily embrace those around us" (July 16, 2010).

I think we could take that further. Amid the swirling currents of economic crises, environmental disasters, rampant cynicism, and generally unsettling human behavior, most of us feel the need sometimes to slow down and find a place where we can be quiet and regroup. Stillness promotes the clear, Christianly scientific thinking that heightens our receptivity to the calm control of the divine Mind, which is God.
