We 9’s loooove our peace and quiet. It feels safer when things are this way.
But did you know that we don’t have to be in a place where there’s no noise, contention or hard work involved in order to experience peace?
True peace and stillness happens when we can be in the midst of those things...and we’re not at the effect of it.
“Silence is helpful, but you don’t need it in order to find stillness. Even when there is noise, you can be aware of the stillness underneath the noise, of the space in which the noise arises. That is the inner space of pure awareness, consciousness itself.”
“Any disturbing noise can be as helpful as silence. How? By dropping your inner resistance to the noise, by allowing it to be as it is, this acceptance also takes you into that realm of inner peace that is stillness” —Elkhart Tolle
