The magic of stillness - it could lead to global peace

Every time I sense into the coming months, I take some deep breaths and feel that stillness will support us through any challenges that might surface.

Stillness allows us to be present in the moment and simply trust the process. We experience a deeper connection with ourselves as well as the world around us. 

I love looking over the Zurich lake and the nearby mountains. I could look at them forever and just watch the changes of nature. 

During stormy times the water is wild and the warning lights are continuously blinking around the harbours along the lake. 

Sometimes the mountains might not even be visible because of fog and clouds.

Our mind can be as stormy as nature. Foggy, windy and wild. After every storm, no matter how long it lasts, eventually the sun appears.

The world looks very different when we observe it from a place of stillness. Imagine what our world would look like if people in power took the time to sit in stillness, observe and breathe.

Imagine politicians, members of  the parliament, the army and so on starting their days, their meetings and their international talks with stillness or a meditation. Their rhetoric and actions would change majorily.

Many times I am particularly amazed by the calmness of the water and the serenity of the majestic mountains.

It feels a bit like I can lose myself in that stillness. Nature radiates an energy of peace and connection and I go in resonance with it. 

The sunrises are spectacular and remind the observer of new beginnings.

Stillness brings a feeling of deep connection and leads to clear thoughts.

It can be very rejuvenating. Stress tends to lead to disease.

Stillness can even be experienced through movement. Just slow it down and maybe you need to exercise first or dance around like crazy just like that storm and then slow it down. 

Find stillness in the movement and movement in the stillness.

The more you create those pockets of stillness in your life when you are feeling good, the easier it will be to connect to that stillness during "stormy times". 

You can meditate, sit in stillness, slow down and focus on your deep breath, listen to calm music, sing, chant, take a slow walk in nature, start writing down your thoughts, draw or paint whatever comes through in that moment or explore anything else that brings some pockets of stillness into your life.

Remember to take one small step, which is particularly important in times of overwhelm or anxiety. 

Can you allow yourself to take a moment now to create a small pocket of stillness? Take some deep breaths and focus on your breathing. Simply observe how you feel afterwards. 

Coming up next: The magic of hope. So, stay tuned...

 Have a magical week!
