Stillness

Run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness, that lovely, mysterious and awesome space.
Edward Abbey

God speaks to Elijah after storms, earthquakes…in the silence and stillness.
John Main

No thought, no action, no movement, total stillness: only thus can one manifest the true nature and law of things from within and unconsciously, and at last become one with heaven and earth.
Lao Tzu

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

Through return to simple living Comes control of desires. In control of desires Stillness is attained. In stillness the world is restored.
Lao Tzu

No thought, no action, no movement, total stillness: only thus can one manifest the true nature and law of things from within and unconsciously, and at last become one with heaven and earth.
Lao Tzu

Your innermost sense of self, of who you are, is inseparable from stillness. This is the I Am that is deeper than name and form.
Eckhart Tolle

It is the stillness that will save and transform the world.
Eckhart Tolle

I am glad that so much movement happens in this stillness.
Richard Land

The stillness in stillness is not the real stillness; only when there is stillness in movement does the universal rhythm manifest.
Bruce Lee

Uncontrolled, the hunger and thirst after God may become an obstacle, cutting off the soul from what it desires. If a man would travel far along the mystic road, he must learn to desire God intensely but in stillness, passively and yet with all his heart and mind and strength.
Aldous Huxley

For those who wish to climb the mountain of spiritual awareness, the path is selfless work. For those who have attained the summit of union with the Lord, the path is stillness and peace.

Bhagavad Gita

O Krishna, the stillness of divine union which you describe is beyond my comprehension. How can the mind, which is so restless, attain lasting peace? Krishna, the mind is restless, turbulent, powerful, violent; trying to control it is like trying to tame the wind.

Blessed are the single-hearted, for they shall enjoy much peace. If you refuse to be hurried and pressed, if you stay your soul on God, nothing can keep you from that clearness of spirit which is life and peace. In that stillness you will know what His will is.
~ Amy Carmichael (December 16, 1867 – January 18, 1951)

How sweet the moonlight sleeps upon this bank.
Here will we sit, and let the sounds of music
Creep in our ears; soft stillness, and the night
Become the touches of sweet harmony.
~ William Shakespeare

The sound of ‘gentle stillness’ after all the thunder and wind have passed will be the ultimate Word from God.
~ Jim Elliot (October 08, 1927 – January 08, 1956)

If water derives lucidity from stillness, how much more the faculties of the mind! The mind of the sage, being in repose, becomes the mirror of the universe, the speculum of all creation.
~ Chuang Tzu

I searched and searched
but then I ceased
and simply stood
still as a man
facing the Sun
in morning’s climb
across the sky.
Then wisdom dawned
time after time
and filled my mind.
~Georg Feuerstein

Once the stillness comes into your life, then the mind also becomes absolutely still. When your mind becomes still, your intelligence explodes.
~Jaggi Vasudev

Your innermost sense of self, of who you are, is inseparable from stillness. This is the I Am that is deeper than name and form
Eckhart Tolle

It is a realm of deep stillness and peace, but also of joy and intense aliveness~Eckhart Tolle

In the place of stillness, rises potential.
From the place of potential, emerges possibility.
Where there is possibility, there is choice.
And where there is choice, there is freedom!
~ Gabriella Goddard

emptiness is only a disguise for an intimacy of God’s, that God’s silence, the eerie stillness, is filled by the Word without words, by Him who is above all names, by Him who is all in all. And his silence is telling us that He is here.
~ Karl Rahner

What is this true meditation? It is to make everything: coughing, swallowing, waving the arms, motion, stillness, words, action, the evil and the good, prosperity and shame, gain and loss, right and wrong, into one single koan
~ Hakuin

Feel your emotions,
Live true your passions,
Keep still your mind.
— Geoffrey M. Gluckman

Be still
Stillness reveals the secrets of eternity
— Lao Tzu

Your duty is to be and not to be this or that. ‘I am that I am’ sums up the whole truth. The method is summed up in the words ‘Be still’. What does stillness mean? It means destroy yourself. Because any form or shape is the cause for trouble. Give up the notion that ‘I am so and so’. All that is required to realize the Self is to be still. What can be easier than that?
— Ramana Maharshi

The inner is foundation of the outer
The still is master of the restless

The Sage travels all day
yet never leaves his inner treasure
— Lao Tzu

Whenever there is stillness there is the still small voice, God’s speaking from the whirlwind, nature’s old song, and dance…
— Annie Dillard (Teaching a Stone to Talk: Expeditions and Encounters)

To a mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.
~Chuang Tzu

The sorrows of duty, Like the heat of the sun, Have scorched your heart. But let stillness fall on you With its sweet and cooling showers, And you will find happiness.
Ashtavakra Gita 18:3

Was it light?
Was it light within?
Was it light within light?
Stillness becoming alive,
Yet still?

A lively understandable spirit
Once entertained you.
It will come again.
Be still.
Wait.
Theodore Roethke

Assess not, compare not! Just be fully present and still, and let the Universe bless you abundantly with Peace and Eternal Love.
– Ernest Fokoue

When you pray you are speaking to God,
meditate, still your mind,
and then you can hear God.
Only when your mind becomes still
can you get clarity.
Shri Shivabalayogi Maharaj

When the mind is left without anything to cling to, it becomes still
~Ramana Maharishi

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”
Psalm 46:10

No thought, no action, no movement, total stillness: only thus can one manifest the true nature and law of things from within and unconsciously, and at last become one with heaven and earth.”
Lao Tzu

When you meditate, what you actually do is to enter into a calm or still, silent mind.
– Sri Chinmoy
