In the stillness

Every human being on the face of the earth has a steel plate in his head,
but if you lie down now and then and get still as you can,
it will slide open like elevator doors,
letting in all the secret thoughts that have been standing around so patiently,
pushing the button for a ride to the top.
The real troubles in life happen when those hidden doors stay
closed for too long.
Sue Monk Kidd
