In a world or urgency, a life of striving, a treadmill of anxious achievement, one thing seems to be increasingly necessary. An antidote to the stresses of this harder, faster, greater, further, more more more existence.
Not in itself a thing. You cannot hold it. It has no form. Stillness isn’t just freezing your limbs, fixing your gaze, holding your breath.
Stillness is a way of being. It is the gap between the doing. A deeper consciousness. An awareness of your very existence.
Stillness offered another is truly a gift. A place from which connection comes. A foundation for attention. Being with.
Stillness within. That is the real challenge.
