On Stillness

Can you be still, without thinking?

"Here is your safety. This is going to be your special place. When you feel confused or when someone is trying to make you what you are not, come back to this Bodhi tree. Sit and close your eyes. Wait for silence. Do nothing to make it come to you. It will come of its own accord."
- Buddha: A Story of Enlightenment, by Deepak Chopra
