Stillness Speaks

Stillness Speaks

Eckhart Tolle: “All artists, whether they know it or not create from a place of inner stillness, a place of no mind.”

Me: “I have so many things on my mind right now its hard to even think!”

ET: “When you lose touch with inner stillness, you lose touch with yourself.”

Me: “It’s too much trouble to set up my tripod so I’ll try to hold myself still.”

ET: “True intelligence operates silently. Stillness is where creativity and solutions to problems are found.”

Me: “I wish that damn bulldozer would finish up so I can concentrate.”

ET: “Surrender comes when you no longer ask, “Why is this happening to me?”

Me: “These mayflies are driving me crazy, why is this happening to me?”

ET: “Whenever you are immersed in compulsive thinking, you are avoiding what is. You don’t want to be where you are. Here, Now.”

Me: “I should have gone to the Shoe House instead of here in Wrightsville, I’d love a shoe brownie right now.”

ET: “Become at ease with the state of not knowing.”

Me: “I have no idea if this will look good in black and white, I just don’t know.”

ET: “Whenever you deeply accept this moment as it is-no matter what form it takes-you are still, you are at peace.”

Me: “Man its hot out here-it must be ninety degrees already and as humid as a rainforest.”

ET: “Suffering is necessary until you realize it is unnecessary.”

Me: “Put a fork in me I’m done, I’m gonna go home, crank up the AC and watch cartoons like a normal unemployed 58 year old man.

ET: “Here is a new spiritual practice for you: don’t take your thoughts too seriously.”

Me: “I think I have a few Rick and Mortys on the DVR, that should get my mind right, I hope so, I’m so confused!”
