Walking the Mind Into Stillness

“Every day, I walk myself into a state of well-being & walk away from every illness. I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it. But by sitting still, & the more one sits still, the closer one comes to feeling ill. Thus if one just keeps on walking, everything will be all right.”

-Soren Kierkegaard

“We should take wandering outdoor walks, so that the mind might be nourished and refreshed by the open air and deep breathing.”

-Seneca

“It is only ideas gained from walking that have any worth.”

-Nietzsche

“It is a paradox that perhaps the single best way to still one’s mind is to put the body in motion.”

-Ryan Holiday

The Stillness & Sanctuary Within You

“Within you is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat at any time and by yourself.”

-Hermann Hesse

Spring, Reflection, Trees, Puddle

 

“The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.”

-Joseph Campbell

Forest, Fog, Trees, Spring

 

“While Eeyore frets …
… and Piglet hesitates
… and Rabbit calculates
… and Owl pontificates
…Pooh just is.”

-The Tao of Pooh

Forest, Fog, Trees, Road, Spring

Time in the forest, that supreme place of sanctuary and stillness, is a  way of beauty and of finding the stillness and sanctuary within yourself…

a place to just be…

Be who you are.
