Sabbath — NaPoWriMo Day 27

For those impacted by the Poway Chabad shooting today, April 27th, 2019.

Quiet. Stillness. These
words mark the seventh
day. A day of rest and
connection. A day we can
take outside of the
thing we call time. Yet
when quiet is interrupted
by the trauma brought
forth by hate, a contraction
– movement away from the
heart, the need for
that seventh day becomes
all the more apparent.
A day isn’t holy just
because a god said it
was. No, a day is holy
when it is seen as a
gateway to the Love that
dissolves the contraction — makes
it so no hate could possibly
stand. In this: Quiet.
Stillness.
