David Whyte - Rest



Rest is the conversation between what we love to do and how we love to be.
Rest is not stasis but the essence of giving and receiving.
Rest is an act of remembering, imaginatively and intellectually, but also physiologically and physically.
To rest is to become present in a different way than through action, and especially to give up on the will as the prime motivator of endeavor, with its endless outward need to reward itself through established goals.
To rest is to give up on worrying and fretting and the sense that there is something wrong with the world unless we put it right;
To rest is to fall back, literally or figuratively from outer targets, not even to a sense of inner accomplishment or an imagined state of attained stillness, but to a different kind of meeting place, a living, breathing state of natural exchange
