STILLNESS IS YOUR NATURAL STATE OF PEACE, LOVE & PURE HAPPINESS.
It sounds a little unreasonable to give something as intangible as stillness so much power. Firstly, it helps to understand what stillness is. I use the term stillness to begin to try to describe a place that lives within you, that's so quiet and unburdened by noise that the closest word to describing it is still. I'm fully aware that stillness is not exactly something that naturally appeals to people, usually we chase the opposite; noise, drama and movement.
If you take a moment to reflect on yourself and others, you'll see that endless movement has never given you deep satisfaction and if it has, has it lasted? There's a heaven realm that lives within you, it's quiet, still and totally beautiful.
It's quiet because your mind is so rarely absent, and still because there's no where to go and nothing to do. It's true relaxation, true freedom.
Once you have a clean slate, you might just be opening a window to allow something far greater in, if you're lucky. A naturally, unending, all encompassing bliss. The ONLY way into that space is to bring yourself fully into THIS moment. And that means letting go of your past, and your ideas about the future.
When you remove all the mental chit chat and your emotional baggage… suddenly everything becomes very peaceful and it feels exceptionally beautiful. It's a place that you will find deep rest and rejuvenation. It will fill up your cup so completely that you overflow with joy.
When you spend more time in this space, you will find yourself becoming happier, more resilient to happenings of your daily life and you'll find your positive energy becomes infectious to the people around you.
That stillness that is your natural condition will flood your experience when the mind gets quieter.
