In prayer, we are taught, we must stand in perfect stillness, as though overwhelmed and absorbed in the Infinite Light.

But isn’t that a lie? Aren’t we pretending to be something far beyond who we really are?

No—it is the truth. That is the true state of our soul, and the body reflects the soul. Everything that stands between—our minds, our hearts and our egos—all may be oblivious to the state of our souls, but the physical body can still reflect it.

How could that be? How could the physical body reflect that which the mind and heart cannot?

Don’t be so surprised. Very often the most lofty and spiritual can find no other place to be manifest but in the most simple and physical.
