The Pursuit of Stillness
What is stillness? Is it a feeling of calm; an absence of agitation or excitement. We often hear this terminology used in classes and we think we know what it is, but how do we accomplish it?
In today’s world, time is money and time is something we are all lacking. People are working less than they were 50 years ago but we have less spare time, we have more and more timesaving devices but less time to use them and we are constantly on the go, working on the go, staying connected on the go. The connected world means we can reach people far away – but in doing so, we’ve lost contact with ourselves … we’ve lost touch with the inner search engine. In such a world, when do we have the opportunity to find stillness other than when we are sleeping and ideally at some point on our mat?
Why am I focussed on stillness?
