Be Still: Blissful Essence, Silent Tranquility Invokes Lucid Liberation

The Essential Midpoint

Having recently flown across the entire country, I can attest that flying in an airplane is a multi-dimensional experience. On the macro level, the airplane is dwelling in this in-between space between earth and sky, above the clouds and below the stars, initiating awe and some bit of terror.
