Stillness

The first three items in my inbox this morning were about stillness. I take that as a sign. Clearly, I subscribe to matter that resonates with me, so it’s not too coincidental, but I have been feeling this urgent need to be calm despite the pandemic.

Real stillness is not (just) physical repose, but more importantly, mental quiet. 

It’s only when one is quiet can one ignore offensive people, create art, be productive and be helpful for those in need.

“Choose knowledge for the sake of knowledge over achievement. We are in an achievement-oriented society. We judge and value people based on their achievements. But most of the people who get caught up in that trap – always trying to “get ahead” – their reward for that is almost always high blood pressure, ulcers, early deaths and even things like cancer. Remember, it’s a perfect universe. There’s no stress in it. Only people thinking stressful thoughts.”
