Friends, so glad our paths have crossed!
Even if only for the few brief moments
when your eyes meet these words …
For even the tiniest of seeds can—
through the mysterious coincidence of causes and conditions—
manifest as something truly magnificent …
The Stillness Within
Stillness and peace are the essence of your Being. It is inner stillness that will save and transform the world.Home is where the (spiritual) heart is. Home is the quality of presence. It’s the quality of being. Home is always here. —Ram Dass
The Stillness Within is about the meditative journey home.
It is about pausing, relaxing, and returning to our essence.
This happens when we learn to stop identifying with the endless train of thoughts and feelings, and just be in the moment.
When we open to the present, we leave behind our fearful ego.
It is our ego which continually clings to the past and obsesses over the future.
Meditative practices are the tools that can help us to let go of our habitual thoughts, emotions and actions, and open to the freedom of the present moment— the eternal now.
Then we can experience a deeper connection to the joy, peace, wisdom, compassion, and love that lies within.
Then we can become aware of our true Self beyond our limited ego consciousness.
In the words of Eckhart Tolle:
To know yourself as the Being underneath the thinker, the stillness underneath the mental noise, the love and joy underneath the pain, is freedom, salvation, enlightenment.
So, welcome to the “stillness within.” Welcome to the “journey home.”
