In Stillness We Find Peace

Someone was asking me this week why I got back into writing music as an artist. That was a difficult question to answer. The better question might have been ‘how’. At the time that I got back into it, I was practicing stillness. In that stillness, came my music.

What is it about stillness that leaves room for creativity?

To know that, we need to know what is present without stillness. Fear, suspicion, doubt, worry are all present, in the majority of us, most of the time.

We worry about our parents and our children. We worry someone is going to swoop in and take it all away from us – this is all hard wired in nature and we show up at the table daily, for most of our lives.

Life is difficult. We are all, even the new born, in a constant state of coping. Much of the art we see today comes from this surface of life, born in the noise of today and in effect adds to it. We see this in today’s reality television and on the big screen ‘blow up everything in sight’ approach to making movies. We are touched by this art, but only in a very temporary, superficial way. It doesn’t speak to our soul; it merely reflects how we might feel on the surface. How do we both experience life and still ourselves in it?

How do we raise our conscious mind to a higher plane? For me, I work on music. THAT is why and how I started writing again, because when I learned how to be still, I realized it was always by my side, ready and waiting to express itself, and ready to fill my world with love and creativity. In practicing stillness, I found myself and part of me is the music I write.

Consider this:

If everyone in the world practiced stillness, there could be a massive tapping into inner knowing. It could create a planet wide wakeup call of creativity and quite possibly, it could even create peace on earth.

With creativity we feel fulfilled. With creativity we can think of a way to coexist on this planet without destroying every square inch of it. With creativity we are satisfied.

Wishing you a week of stillness and creativity.

    I like the kind of movie where they discuss what cheeseburgers are called in other places. Royale With Cheese! NOT the Quarter Pounder because of the metric system. Although, blowing up the Death Star (! & 2) = awesomeness. This is the Dawning of the Age Of Aquarius! That's not a song, it's actually happening. But you know that. moo.
