Listen to the Stillness

Within you, there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself. Herman Hesse. 


Driven by technology and countless other meaningless distractions, many of us today are so busy doing instead of being that it is easy to lose sight of ourselves, of what’s important and what’s not.

The state of busyness can overtake you and throw you off your game if you’re not watchful. Emerging from the all-consuming disruption of the pandemic, before jumping back into the game, it’s more important than ever to find a place to pause and have a quiet talk with yourself; to reflect upon where you’re going from here – and more importantly why. 

Any quiet place will do. It doesn’t have to expensive either. It could be a walk in a nearby park or in a large city garden, even a long drive out on the highway… anywhere where you can think and connect the dots without the constant daily noise.

Listening to the stillness within you keeps you connected to your true self, calms your soul, fosters creativity and restores clarity… just when you need it the most.

Stay safe. Stay interested. Stay interesting.

As always, thank you for reading me.

I hope to see you back here again soon.

Heads up: Taking my own advice, I am embarking on a brief sabbatical to listen again to my stillness and will return August 15.  Enjoy your summer!
