Seeking Stillness

When I speak of stillness, I am referring to the quieting of the mind. If you have an overactive mind, with thoughts that never stop, then moments of stillness can be a blessing. Many of us think that having a quiet mind can be quite difficult so we don’t bother to even attempt to meditate or to be still. Amazingly the process of making art also helps us to develop inner stillness.

Finding that place of stillness is actually as easy as focusing on the space between our breath. As we inhale, just before the exhalation there is a pause, within the pause there is stillness.
Try it!..
Don’t hold your breath, or force anything, just allow your mind to go to the space between the breath and see what happens. In the same way when we are making art, or being creative, our mind is directed inward and we are able to connect to a more universal inner space, a source for a creative connection.
