“There are moments of sheer beauty when one must pause and be silent, for only in silence can one even dare to contemplate true beauty”

I paused, perched high on top a lone boulder by the shore, fearless, oblivious to the waves which menacingly splashed around me. It was if a sea of white foam coursed all around, engulfing everything in its path and then retreating albeit hesitantly into the depths of the Ocean. Looking afar, a series of enormous cliffs rose defiantly from a narrow isthmus projecting into the deep blue sea. Proud they stood, mystical rock formations beautifully cast against the brilliant blue clouds that were strewn across Heaven itself. The winds danced wildly amidst the boulders rising occasionally into a crescendo at once in harmony with the sound of waves splashing around me. There are moments of sheer beauty when one must pause and be silent, for only in silence can one even dare to contemplate true beauty. A silence which commands our every sense and manifests the magnificence of Creation in all its splendour. I sat in silence for long moments; deep from within my mind, heart and soul resonated the words… “Be still, and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10).
