To meet everything and everyone through stillness instead of mental noise is the greatest gift you can offer to the universe.

I love the picture. And as always, you find the most beautiful sentiments to live by. I still need to work on my stillness when I meet people. I'm not a natural around others, so I tend to get flighty in social situations. It's a problem.

Good morning, Yoli,
Thank you for your kind praise.
I think you would like this one, a sort of continuation to Stillness Speaks,

Ahhh, stillness. Are we. Ever. Motionless? Quiet. Immobile? To the point of. Non. Movement?

Methinks that there's a tiny, minute, fleeting instant in which the whole world stops at once and we hear the gasp of a hare, the footsteps of a turtle or the raspy voice of a giraffe.

Many thanks for another beautiful post.

Greetings from London.

yes

i have been wrapping my arms

around stillness

silence

breathing it all in

leaving space

to be filled up

to overflowing

with new life

:)
