There’s such peace in the stillness, I could sit in it for hours. As I stared at this blank screen for a while, there was so much joy in the presence. Part of me didn’t want words to come, but the words just found me as I let go of needing them. 

The cozy structure of my orbit chair captures my aura. I often think of my orbit chair when I think about energy; just as this chair blocks out the world through its protective walls, there’s an opening where reality can enter and exit. So, just like my aura is my protective shield, there’s still an opening – one I’ve learned to take true care of. That’s the first thought that runs through my head during my adventures in stillness.

My fingers rest gently on the comfort of my computer’s keys. My eyes rest gently on the comfort of my computer’s blank screen. My soul rests gently in the unknowns of where stillness will take me. This comfort is one I’ve learned to love. In the past, the still and the lack of words would create a rush in my mind. But now, one of my favorite parts about writing are those moments where I don’t know what’s going to come. There’s a certain indescribable thrill there.

I feel the tingling in my hands and the energy in my toes. I get to that place where all is so still and alive, that feeling goes away. It’s not at all numbness, it is a beingness – I’m so deeply aware of every wave in my soul, that the body floats away. I first found this state in practicing lucid dreaming, it immediately felt like home. All labels, constructs and movement go away – it’s just me and that something within. You know when you’re in the car and you know you’re going at 50 mph, but you just don’t feel it? Now imagine that feeling in your own vehicle, your body; that’s the state I’m talking about. I know I am in my body but in this delightful stillness – I don’t feel it.

Years ago, the stillness scared me. Today, the stillness is my favorite place to be. I find it in the rush, I find it in the unknown and I become it whenever I choose. It’s an instant reboot on reality, an instant connection to the Universe (you). So today, when the speed of life tries to encapsulate you, breathe and be still. Find the comfort in the presence of deeply being and sit in the depths of truly being alive. You are in control of the way you live. -Ace

  9. My soul rests gently in the unknowns of where stillness will take me – what a beauty you conveyed in words. Here onwards I think I travelled with your words and drifted in my own beingness, that stillness that is so alive and pulsating too. I will say no more, so not to break my own trance that you led me into. Yes, it used to scare me initially too. And now it is exactly everything you say.

    A beautiful exploration of the paradox of stillness. An apparent nothingness, which contains everything. I love the way you write about the slowing down of all things. Being present is just like that. Nothing exists, just this, then this…love this post, my dearest Ace. Is beautiful. Your light shines through us all. 🤗❤️🤗
