When we are children, our parents tell us that if we ever find ourselves lost we should be still and stay in the same place. They say to call for them, make some noise, ask for help and to make sure you’re visible so we are easier to find once more.
What about when we feel lost when we’re adults? Do the rules still apply?
Do we stop wandering, cease to move and remain still? Can we be more visible if we stop our struggle forward? Will it make it easier for us to be found?
Do we scream for help, hoping that someone will recognize our cries? Will someone swoop in and save us? Will someone guide us back home?
Can we become less lost by staying in the same place?
When we are adults, the rules can still apply.
Sometimes the only way that we can find ourselves when we are lost is to stop for awhile and remain very still and listen.
The cry we need to hear is the one from our own heart.
The help we need to ask isn’t of anyone else, it’s of ourselves.
It’s making noise to be heard by our own ears, to be seen with our own eyes. To bear witness to this still place and to really be present with what is. And to ask ourselves authentically, in this sacred solitude, if this is where we truly want to be.
Sometimes we realize that no matter how little we are able to move, or how still we have to be for a time; that no matter how turned around we get, that this can be a place where we can still find ourselves.
And that no matter how lost we get in this world, we can always find our way back home once more. We just need to stop and be still for awhile.
