It has been said: “Stillness is the language God speaks, and everything else is a bad translation.”

Becoming conscious of stillness whenever we encounter it in our lives will connect us with the formless and timeless dimension within ourselves, that which is beyond thought, beyond ego.

Eckhart Tolle


It may be we find this peace in nature, in the quietness in waking up in the early morning or in the silence between every day sounds. When we encounter stillness within we connect with our essential essence.

Eckhart tells us we are never more deeply ourselves then when we are still.

Does it not make sense to embrace these moments and make room for more of them in our hectic lives?

Find your Middle Ground and come home to your true self.

  1. Love this Val. Reminds me of Robert Adams:

    Searching for enlightenment is futile. The whole act of searching is yet another “doing” that covers up stillness. Stillness is true enlightenment. The mind can’t be enlightened. It’s job is movement and accumulation of knowledge and happenings and circumstances.
