“Being still is not an act of physical motionlessness or of quieting the mind. It is about being available to whatever is occurring in every moment.” Adyashanti in The Most Important Thing
Take the pressure off to “find time” or “make time” for being still or meditating. Don’t make it another obligation or something you think you “should” do. Being still is about noticing that stillness is always there in every moment. It is the ground of your being – who you truly are. You’re never separate from stillness and there’s nothing to find, nowhere to go, no one else to be.
That’s the central message in my little children’s book called Nowhere Better, which is now out in print. You can find it here. A reminder for us all that our true self is always and already present, whole, and complete.
