When we are still…

“When we are still, 
all settles into place. 
We take time to see the beauty.
We take time to see the heart.
And we naturally gravitate to others that resonate that inner calm. 
When we are still.” 

― Tom Althouse, The Frowny Face Cow

When you lose touch with inner stillness…

Copyright 2014 by R.A. Robbins

When you lose touch with inner stillness, you lose touch with yourself.

When you lose touch with yourself, you lose yourself in the world.

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

“Meditators dream of attaining the single-pointed focus that young children experience naturally when they play.

Spiritual aspirants long for the rapture that defines moments of pure delight.”

“This is the real secret of life—

to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now.

And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.”

~ Alan W. Watts

Why Not Try and See Positive Things?

Copyright 2016 by R.A. Robbins

“People deal too much with the negative,

with what is wrong.

Why not try and see positive things,

to just touch those things and make them bloom?”

          —–Thich Nhat
