Stillness and Silence

In New York, where we celebrate the Energizer Bunny as our role model, it takes an effort to slow down and keep still. Yet, can the importance of rest, stillness and silence be stated enough, especially when the world is shaking as it is? Picture it as a never-ending well of energy that we tap into whenever we choose to. See it as the balancing force of all the effort and activity we go through in our daily lives. It is where we regain our strength, calm, and get in touch with our true selves. What if we decided to take 30 minutes each day just to breathe and clear ourselves? How much more productive and creative would we be? How much more aware would we become? Let’s try it and see what happens. Couldn’t we all use a break?

Oh, and don’t mind the monkey mind, which will try its best to keep you enslaved in its tired habits.
