“It is the stillness that will save and transform the world.” Eckhart Tolle
“Blessed are the single-hearted, for they shall enjoy much peace. If you refuse to be hurried and pressed, if you stay your soul on God, nothing can keep you from that clearness of spirit which is life and peace. In that stillness you will know what His will is.” Amy Carmichael
Stillness calls my name…
As NaNoWriMo beckons
Write on other days…
“Through return to simple living Comes control of desires. In control of desires Stillness is attained. In stillness the world is restored.” Lao Tzu
“For those who wish to climb the mountain of spiritual awareness, the path is selfless work. For those who have attained the summit of union with the Lord, the path is stillness and peace.” Bhagavad Gita
Stillness calms my nerves…
No need to challenge nature
Stress with fear left town…
My goal is to focus on stillness while writing this haiku with no three letter words. More below!
“One’s action ought to come out of an achieved stillness: not to be mere rushing on.” D.H. Lawrence
“Your innermost sense of self, of who you are, is inseparable from stillness. This is the I Am that is deeper than name and form.” Eckhart Tolle
Stillness cancels plans…
To NaBloPoMo‘s write fest.
Breathe, ride soothing waves…
Have a playful, restful week ahead!
