It’s Australia Day here. There is so much loud chatter about what it is, what it should be and what it isn’t that I decided to dedicate the day to Stillness instead. On Monday I will post about the chatters. Not now.
Now it is time to be still.
Let’s start with this –
Aaaah – so much better!

There is a presence, a silence, a stillness which is here by itself. There is no doer of it, no creator of this stillness. It is simply here in you, with you. It is the fragrance of your own self. There is nothing to do about this, it is naturally present. This fragrance of peace, this spaciousness, it is the fragrance of your own being. ~ Mooji
