Inner stillness is the true essence of your Being.
“When you lose touch with inner stillness, you lose touch with yourself. When you lose touch with yourself, you lose yourself in the world.”
Practice being in stillness. When things are quiet, stop and take a moment to actively listen to the silence. It will awaken your inner peace. Nature provides wonderful opportunities to connect with the present moment through stillness – let your awareness rest upon a flower, a tree, a stone, and allow them to teach you.
In the midst a cacophony, stillness can be accessed by dropping your resistance to the noise. Your acceptance is another gateway into stillness. As you practice being at peace with what is, you’ll discover a new depth of perception and serenity. This is where your inner wisdom will arise.
We have two aspects of experience – our true infinite nature and the egoic self of personality. When you step into stillness you’ll discover the difference between these two expressions of your life situation. When we drop thought we are able to see more clearly. Observe how often you can bring that inner awareness to your experiences.
Today my intention is to allow stillness to direct my words and actions.
