Be the silent watcher

“Be the silent watcher of your thoughts and behaviour. You are beneath the thinker. You are the stillness beneath the mental noise. You are the love and joy beneath the pain.” — Eckhart Tolle

 

 

In the place of stillness…

“In the place of stillness, rises potential. From the place of potential, emerges possibility. Where there is possibility, there is choice. And where there is choice, there is freedom.” ~ Gabriella Goddard

The Only Way to Counteract Chaos

“When everything is moving and shifting, the only way to counteract chaos is stillness.

When things feel extraordinary, strive for ordinary.

When the surface is wavy, dive deeper for quieter waters.”

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

All Creativity Requires Some Stillness

 

Copyright 2014 by R.A. Robbins

“Everything that’s created comes out of silence.

Your thoughts emerge from the nothingness of silence.

Your words come out of this void. Your very essence emerged from emptiness.

All creativity requires some stillness.”

— Wayne Dyer

Be Still

Have you noticed how busy everyone seems to be?  So caught up in striving for success and perfection many “just don’t have time” to prepare or eat a healthy meal, talk to their children or sometimes even sleep.

This can even extend to our spiritual lives.  We get so caught up looking for God we forget the divine is within us — as close as the air we breathe.  All we have to do is connect.

I believe all this striving and running after success, perfection and even God is the reason for the spiritual sickness we see in this world.  When was the last time you took a minute to take a deep breath, sit in stillness, and just be?  This is important.  This is when we hear from Spirit.  It is also why our dreams are so important.  Sometimes our sleep is the only time Spirit can reach us.

I know we live in a world where taking time to be still is considered a weakness.  People who do this may even be called “lazy.”  But taking time to rest our body, mind, and spirit and listen for guidance from Spirit is actually where we find our true strength.

I will leave you with this reminder from the Jewish/Christian Holy Bible.
