Within you there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself. ~Herman Hesse
In sitting meditation, focusing on the breath, I reach occasional fleeting moments of what seems like stillness of the mind. I believe this stillness is the place where illusions disappear. I can’t say how this helps me, but I know it does–not only in the moment, but beyond.
I don’t want to say a lot “publicly” about my work, but I went into it a year ago with a lot of illusions. Long ago, Terry noted that I find my wisdom in stillness. And the more I have been able to be still, the more these illusions have dropped away. In their place I find clarity, the ability to see a situation as it really is, not colored by what it purports to be, what I want it to be, or by my will to shape it. What is, is. And that is liberating!
