There is a place within us where all thoughts meet.
This place can not be found or revealed when you seek.
It’s something you pass through when focussing on something else.
It emerges out of the life-long practice of something beyond yourself.
It cannot be taught. It can be shared. It’s feeling with our thought.
It’s thought with our feeling. It’s discovered when peeling
away the layers of pomp, romp and circumstance.
This place of no place is within us all.
It is our center of action
It is simply
to move or react to
what’s happening around us,
This is the place within us all discovered
by some in meditation and by others through interaction.
Stillness is when a mountain crashes down before you and you
remain unmoved. It is being unstirred by the passions while at the
same time embracing the senses, perceptions and fantasies of mind.
Stillness enables our passions to connect and explore without
emptiness of spirit. Stillness is where we all return
when we let go of our need to be
something we are not.
