Using action to achieve stillness

January 23, 2020

As the title ‘Using action to achieve stillness’ seems a contradiction, the idea behind it deserves a brief explanation.

Using action to achieve stillness refers, at least in this instance, to the notion of taking conscious actions for the sake of creating a moment of calm in our daily schedule. Once available, this space could become the time for us to meditate, reflect, enjoy nature or indeed any other form of ‘being’ as opposed to ‘doing’.

That we need to go about using action to achieve stillness is itself a statement regarding life today. Nevertheless, rather than attempt to deny the frenzy around us, we can choose to navigate our way through it, after a period of stillness, to arrive at our desired goals.

Using action to achieve stillness might also be a method to keep ourselves balanced in the face of the constant pressure to ‘get more done’, ‘by yesterday’, if possible!

So, that’s what I meant by using action to achieve stillness. To share your input on this concept, please leave a comment below.
