The need for stillness

“Too many of us learn to ‘love’ distress and anxiety: we say it is the way of work and the world. Just five minutes of silence seems pointless. But we get in touch with the ‘inner teacher’ when we find times to be still in our day, connecting us with deep peace and balance. It is available to be tapped into as we live in the moment: talking to people, working on tasks, walking with a fresh breeze on our faces, even running.” – An extract from my book in The Furrow journal

    Hear hear Gavin.
    I have just started reading a book ‘Deep Work’ by Cal Newport as recommended by James Radcliffe in his blog James Radcliffe.com which has given me food for thought in this area.
    Your book ‘Bursting out in Praise’ arrived today, looks good.
    Enjoy your weekend 🙂🙏

      Thank you for this Margaret, and it’s always good to hear of other bloggers. I like his idea on mastering distraction. Perhaps you can let me know what you like about the book when you read it. Blessings, Gavin

        Will do Gavin, parts of it heavy going so far but filtering the relevant parts. Have dipped into your book and it looks great.
        Blessings
        Margaret.
