Cultivate stillness: stillness is our true nature

A little excerpt from the audio contemplation presented below:

There is of course a reason for everything in nature. Your body tells you when you have moved out of harmony so you can adapt and find the most effortless way forward. But we were never intended to live out of harmony. We actually become addicted to stress and the hormones it releases inside us (adrenaline). It’s not that we enjoy it. No one enjoys stress – it’s deeply uncomfortable – but we do become addicted to it. When you only think with your mind, you are operating out of a mere fraction of your true potential. The ancient Chinese called this hexagram ‘Keeping Still’, and it is symbolised by a mountain. Its message is – there is no hurry. The fear that you will miss out comes from this Shadow – the fear that you haven’t got enough time. It’s all about time and our perception of time. When you are stressed, time is always running too fast, or too slow. Stress also has a passive manifestation – which is when we feel stuck. That feeling comes out of this 52nd Shadow. When you feel stuck, it’s because your breathing isn’t reaching down to your base. You can never really be stuck. You just aren’t accepting where your rhythm is. — Richard Rudd
