That Deep Stillness Is There In You


When you look at a flower, an amazing thing happens. You notice that it is very still. Anything in nature; you suddenly notice that there is an essence beyond that which you see. It lives in a state of deep stillness. And when you notice that, at that moment, that deep stillness is there in you, when you notice it in the flower.

The flower lives in that state. The noticing of it is that arising in you of that state of stillness, and that is the state of great sacredness and aliveness and beauty, but deeper than the beauty of form. It is the formless that arises in you. The formless consciousness.

~Written by Eckhart Tolle
