The importance of Stillness


Developing stillness is one of the essential qualities in healing, in spiritual evolvement and in practical problem solving. To achieve any degree of stillness or depth within yourself, there must be greater simplicity in your life.

Getting to a place of stillness is even more important than the result, for in achieving this you begin to have the fundamental qualities of concentration, discernment, patience, perseverance, faith, compassion and forgiveness—all things which are very essential.

To approach stillness—this deep state of alert observation in the face of difficulty or dilemma—means that you are at least willing to become quiet and observant rather than struggle for resolution or to achieve something.
