Currently, I am examining Selfseeds Stillness a lot while meditating and learning at the feet of a spiritual master. When I first put stillness on the list, I had no idea of the layers and depth that were involved. The past three years have been focused on just this one selfseed. When I look at the collection of selfseeds, in many ways I would put stillness as a priority, because as I am learning, it effects everything else on the list–emotion, balance, partnering, etc. Our inner state obviously influences our outer state–it is a direct connection without any wavering. It is not realistic for most people to devote years to this topic, but 5 minutes a day is useful. The point is to have very strict focus in the 5 minutes. Work to have a straight spine and good posture. Use the time to discipline the mind and remind it to be single-pointed. Enjoy having a chance to focus inwardly and start to explore the origins of the real you. At the very least, use it as a well deserved time out to regroup, slow down, and breath.
