The Essence Of Stillness

‘When we release our ideas, thoughts, and concepts, we make space for our true mind. Our true mind is silent of all words and all notions, and is so much vaster than limited mental constructs. Only when the ocean is calm and quiet can we see the moon reflected in it.’

How divine?

And there’s more …

‘Living from a place of silence doesn’t mean never talking, never engaging or doing things; it simply means that we are not disturbed inside …’

So. Much. More.

It’s part of an excerpt from Silence by Thich Nhat Hanh on Spiritually Healthy and I just had to share it with you because it’s such a gently uplifting read … like the softest of breezes caressing your cheek.
