“Within you there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself.”~Hermann Hesse~
Still: (from Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary) adjective, devoid of or abstaining from motion, uttering no sound, quiet, subdued, muted, calm, tranquil, free from noise or turbulence. noun – stillness
Stillness, a simple word, a simple concept. Or is it? Certainly sounds like it should be easy enough, just sit still, don’t move, and be quiet. But sometimes it is the hardest thing one can try and do. And maybe that is where the problem lies. For much like everything else in life, we have a hard time just letting things be, to sit still, to be quiet, to do . . . well, nothing. So often we feel that we have to, or should be doing something. So much so that even when it comes to being still, we feel that it is something that we have to make happen. So rather than just being still, it’s something we try and do.
This month the focus in the “Positive Provocations Newsletter” will be STILLNESS.
The newsletter will cover topics such as :
- How to Find stillness?
- How to meditate to tap into that stillness?
- How to build clarity, focus & self awareness through stillness?

- Extracts from Spiritual Writers/Teachers books on stillness.

Can’t wait. Stillness has been my goal for ages, and mostly recently (with very little luck to boot). Thanks Zeenat. Bring it on!
Well, all your stillness queries will be put to rest once you get this newsletter 🙂 Glad you like this and have subscribed. Your support meas a lot. Thank you.
I love this month’s topic, Z! Looking forward to the newsletter! xx
Glad you like it Carla…expect the unexpected 😉
Hi Z, you indeed will cover a lot and that is expected of a generous soul. I have subscribed.
I have to give myself permission to be still, knowing it is important otherwise I keep going as there is always so much to do AND of course being busy is a status symbol isn’t it? Saying “Oh I am so busy” means that you are adventurous in taking so much on. Ha, if you compare that with overeating, who would say overeating is good?
Thanks Z for confirming it is okay to be still and not to overeat on busyness. xox Wilma
I know where youre coming from..cause seriously this society feeds of the illusion of busyness. I dont knw in which twisted universe did being busy mean you were successful..but thats exactly what it is now isnt it..
I often tease an aunt of mine who has this habit of constantly saying she is busy…i mean all the time…i kid with her “aunty what are you so busy doing??Busy doing nothing I bet…cause thats what I am doing too 😉 ”
Thank you for subscribing Wilma…your support means so much.
Hi Zeenat .. I think your timing is perfect .. by May 15th life will be slightly easier and I can pay attention and grasp your thoughts on stillness and life .. I really look forward to it ..
Thanks your blog is wonderful and I love the calmness you exude and love that you extend to us all ..
