The Only Way to Counteract Chaos

Morning Flight

“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.”

 

— Kristin Armstrong

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

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

Dance!

Copyright 2017 by R.A. Robbins

“Dance. Dance for the joy and breath of childhood. Dance for all children, including that child who is still somewhere entombed beneath the responsibility and skepticism of adulthood. Embrace the moment before it escapes from our grasp. For the only promise of childhood, of any childhood, is that it will someday end. And in the end, we must ask ourselves what we have given our children to take its place. And is it enough?”
― Richard Paul Evans, The Christmas Box Miracle: My Spiritual Journey of Destiny, Healing and Hope
