Inner Stillness — How to Find What Nourishes and Sustains You

Inner stillness is yours…

Inner stillness isn’t easy to come by. But it is surely worth finding.

Your journey toward inner stillness is about making time to look, listen, and touch the moments of your life.

While this can feel like an elusive goal, it doesn’t need to be that way. We don’t need to let ourselves get so caught up in our lists and tasks that we forget that there is a world of depth and texture inside that is incalculably enriching.

And it is ALWAYS accessible.

Inner stillness takes you deeper…

Here’s the powerful (and magical) thing about time, as summed up by the writer James Carroll:

We spend most of our time and energy in a kind of horizontal thinking. We move along the surface of things [but] there are times when we stop. Then we sit still. And we lose ourselves in a pile of leaves or its memory. We listen and breezes from a whole other world begin to whisper.

James Carroll

It may take some practice, but any time you choose to be still and focus inward, things open up.  It might be a memory, a long-ago feeling or moment, or a heart connection that warms you.

Whatever it is that rises up from the depths, know that it is part of you.  It reveals something about your inner terrain — the rich inner worlds that you harbor.

How about now?

Summertime, with its soft breezes and slower rhythms, offers a wonderful opportunity to start making these small journeys inward.

Start with ten or fifteen minutes and just sit in silence. Dip into the quiet and see what you discover.  

What images bubble up from inside?  How do they affect your energy?

This is a wonderful, accessible way of coming to know and nourish yourself more deeply.  Take the first step today and you’ll see. And the more you do it, the easier and more enjoyable it gets.
