In Stillness Magic Happens

Everything that's created comes out of silence. Your thoughts emerge from the nothingness of silence. Your words come out of this void. Your very essence emerged from emptiness. All creativity requires some stillness Wayne Dyer

Yesterday a few friends and I decided to walk through the rain forest to see the Turure Falls. I have always wanted to go there and the opportunity presented itself yesterday which I took with both hands!

The drive to the entrance was just about an hour, then we had to park the car and walk through the rainforest to find the falls. The beauty of the falls we heard, is that there are 4 levels like fully formed steps, straight out of nature! I was excited to see this.

Whilst walking through the rain forest, the silence was deafening! The stillness was breathtaking, it actually woke me up. It almost felt like a bolt into my consciousness to say - take some time to be still, to be silent, to be awake!

The little reminders are always on time

We revel in the busyness of life, it is used as a validation of worth

We are too busy to eat properly

too busy to exercise

too busy to call a loved one

too busy to go to the doctor or dentist

too busy to sleep


Many times we want to feel important

Here is what I leant

Silence and stillness is also important, in fact, it is a powerful force

Have you heard the sun rise?

Have you heard the sun set?

Have you heard the moon come out?

Have you heard the sperm and the egg connect?

Sometimes the loudest lesson comes in silence
