Embracing Stillness

As spiritual searchers we need to become freer and freer of the attachment to our own smallness in which we get occupied with me-me-me. Pondering on large ideas or standing in front of things which remind us of a vast scale can free us from acquisitiveness and competitiveness and from our likes and dislikes. If we sit with an increasing stillness of the body, and attune our mind to the sky or to the ocean or to the myriad stars at night, or any other indicators of vastness, the mind gradually stills and the heart is filled with quiet joy. Also recalling our own experiences in which we acted generously or with compassion for the simple delight of it without expectation of any gain can give us more confidence in the existence of a deeper goodness from which we may deviate.

Just for today

Hold stillness inside you

While the world pulses and races and dances a crazy dance

Turn inward

Be aware of your breathing

Consciously slow yourself

And be filled with peace

It only takes a moment

And you can be in stillness

Like a Mountain

Strong, stable, eternal

Life going on all around you

With you the silent witness

There is an expansiveness in silence

An awareness

A connection

And a great calm.

Today my wish for you is moments of stillness to clarify and illuminate your day.

Today my wish for you is peace in your heart.  

Thinking of you and sending love,

Nicole xx

  1. Today i found my neighbour had died some weeks ago on the floor beside his bed and no one noticed. I have been away for weeks. I returned and noticed he wasn’t about and went looking for him. Please say a blessing for Peter. He was a recluse and a nice man.

    1. I am so sorry to hear this. Thanks for being such a caring soul. I will hold you both in my prayers and meditations 🙏💕
