Stillness is a sanctuary we can enter into at any time, and it is from this place that we can perceive the world and ourselves as we truly are. Stillness returns us home to the wellspring of peace which flows from the center of each our souls. In a culture which seems to propel us into frenetic motion from dawn till dusk, perhaps the most sane thing we can do is set aside our hurried pace and simply sit still.
The practice of stillness can feel uncomfortable at first, but when we release resistance, we enter into a space of deep repose which restores both the body and the soul. By cultivating a sense of inner stillness through regular practice, we become able to weather the stormy seasons of our lives with greater wisdom, wholeness, a sense of support from the unseen world of Spirit.
