Stillness is Dynamic

Being married to a pilot, we fly a lot. When I take in-flight photos through the window, the propellor looks motionless. Not because it's still, but because it's spinning so fast! 


Physics tells us that everything—without exception—is in motion. Even the Buddha statues you see in the header photo I took while on sabbatical in Montana.


Stillness is dynamic; it's un-conflicted movement (no friction). We experience it when there's unrestricted participation in the moment; when we’re unreservedly present with whatever we’re doing.


Stillness is a natural rhythm in the cycle of life. In the space that stillness creates we have the opportunity to quiet the mind and body; to re-group, re-charge, re-connect, and to find a point of reference; something to measure against. 


For me, that point of reference is my inner compass. From here, I can move back into the busy world refreshed.


Do you create intentional stillness?
