Stillness


The word prompt this week at Our Beautiful World is 
Stillness


... chosen for us by Wendy

Stillness is something I learned a lot about in the years I studied Practical Philosophy ... to let the mind fall still ... to connect instead with sound, sight, the universe and oneself
It takes practice but it can work wonders ... It can dissipate all anxiety


For even on the roughest oceans ... just below the surface of crashing waves ... there is always Stillness

After the storms we had this week ... up 140mph winds ... my wind chimes fell silent


Stillness returned ... 

Stillness ...
Living statues


Sitting in the heat of the day in Palma Majorca
Can you imagine sitting in the heat all day with such Stillness? I couldn't
Especially dressed in dark clothing


They've learnt the art of Stillness ... you don't even see them breathe

We're looking forward to seeing your photos this week ... Share with us at
Our Beautiful World - visit the blog and discover Stillness from around the globe

Have a peaceful Sunday

Till soon 

~ Ros ~

Hi Ros,

The gifts of stillness are many, and once received, can lead to 'movement' towards appreciation.

Thanks for sharing your own clarity of this state of being.

You have really captured stillness beautifully in your photos here Ros. Isn't it wonderful if you can hear the stillness? That you're not afraid to connect to your inner self? Hugs, Ira

Beautiful photo's Ros, I love your stillness. There is something to be said about being still, only then can you feel the presence of Christmas. Have a beautiful Monday, we have warmed up a little.
