Stay Still




Silence is consent. Grant yourself the permission to stay still.


“When we set aside a bit of energy to purposefully remain calm and relaxed every moment—rain, hail or shine—suddenly our life will shift from meaningless living to living with depth, warmth and cheerfulness.” - Sri Avanash


 

Imagine a life without reflection. Picture a world where every moment rushes past, unexamined like water slipping through cupped hands. In such a life, there's no time to pause, consider, or appreciate the depth and beauty inherent in each experience. Reflection is the cornerstone of mindfulness, the practice that anchors us in the present and opens the door to profound transformation.


In the chaos of our daily lives, it's easy to overlook the importance of carving out moments for introspection. Yet, it is in these moments of stillness that we find clarity. Taking time to review and reflect allows us to unravel the complexities of our thoughts and emotions, paving the way for greater self-awareness and understanding.


Life is a tapestry woven from contrasting threads—joy and sorrow, light and darkness, love and loss. By embracing the full spectrum of human experience, we gain a deeper appreciation for the richness of life. Through introspection and reflection, we learn to navigate the complexities of our existence with grace and resilience.


Grow with change, not despite it. Change is the only constant in life—a force that shapes and reshapes our reality with each passing moment. Instead of resisting change, we can choose to embrace it as a catalyst for growth and transformation. By cultivating a mindset of openness and adaptability, we can navigate life's ever-changing landscape with grace and resilience.


Hold space. In a world filled with noise and distraction, holding space for silence and stillness is a radical act of self-care. Create sacred moments of solitude where you can reconnect with yourself and the world around you. In the quietude of these moments, you will find clarity, peace, and a renewed sense of purpose.


Your time is your most precious resource—a gift to be cherished and protected. Make yourself a priority by carving out moments for self-care and reflection. Whether it's a few minutes of meditation each day or a leisurely walk in nature, honour the importance of nurturing your mind, body, and spirit.


Mindfulness and meditation offer us a pathway to embrace the fullness of our human experience—to review, reflect, and grow with grace and resilience. By embracing reflection, allowing for regret and mourning, cultivating compassion, assessing contrasts, anticipating disappointment, and embracing change, we can navigate life's ups and downs with greater ease and wisdom. So, let us give thanks for the gift of mindfulness and hold space and time for the most important journey of all—the journey within.


Namaste.
