Stillness is what has to be sought in the world full of chaos. The literal meaning of stillness is to be quiet, silent, or habitual silence. Stillness is not loneliness, but about creating a state to allow yourself to dream, think, feel, create and question.
In the world of movement, you have to find stillness instead of waiting for the world to slow down. Stillness can be divided in three areas; the stillness of mind, spirit, and body. Every religion has emphasized to practice stillness in order to seek peace and wisdom. Because we cannot see our reflection in the running water, rather in the still water.
The Stillness of mind: To sustain a complete peace of mind is very challenging as we are prisoned by the ways we react to the situations in life. The aim is to find tranquillity in mind by settling down for a bit every day. Close your eyes and become aware of your thoughts, let them flow, and then let go. The more you resist them; the more they will return.
The stillness of spirit: For the exploration of stillness of the spirit, meditate to create a space for deep-seated listening. And only then you can hear the spoken truth. Ask yourself questions about ?your purpose in life? what?s important to you and why? Learn to know, where to stop and be wary of your desires.
The stillness of Body: The body serves its purpose as a vessel for mind and soul. Therefore, we need to give our body permission to relax, to settle, to release, and then invite our mind to learn stillness from the body. In addition to that, if we don?t take care of our body, then being mentally and spiritually substantial doesn?t matter.
Another derivation of stillness is that you develop trust ? A very deep trust in God and His forces working on your behalf, and a very deep trust in your true nature and divine heritage.
