Shekinah and Sakinah: The Indwelling


The beginning of movement is stillness. The beginning of sound is silence. Within every dance of creation, the flutter of a bird’s wings, the explosion of a star, the hand that heals an injured child, is stillness at the core. Within every sound in this universe, the singing of a choir, the hammering of a nail, the cry of a gull at sea, there is silence at the centre of each utterance. The Shekinah, Sakinah, the Indwelling, God with us at the heart of all being and It’s manifestations. Ya Hayy!

    I am planning to visit Jerusalem next month, March 2010 Ins’allah.
    I was wondering of anyone had any tips or suggestions about Sufi activities.
