Stop Running

Truth is not the result of an effort, the end of a road. It is here and now, in the very longing and the search for it….It is your own.
Just stop running away by running after.
Stand still, be quiet.
— Nisargadatta Maharaj

We do so much, we run so quickly, the situation is difficult, and many people say, “Don’t just sit there, do something.” But doing more things may make the situation worse.
So you should say, “Don’t just do something, sit there.” Sit there, stop, be yourself first, and begin from there.
— Thich Nhat Hanh

 

Merry Christmas y’all

May we all find the time to be still.
