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.”


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


“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.
