I can’t hear myself think. What should I do?
Seek the still space
Sometimes our minds get over-loaded. There is so much going on that we feel we are going to explode. At such times the best, perhaps the only thing to do is to seek the still space.
I wrote “THE STILL SPACE” to remind myself that when I get overwhelmed by events and my thoughts are racing out of control, I have literally lost control. Doing more of the same is not going to do me any good at all. This is not the time for more thinking, this is the time to let go and seek the still space. This is the time to calm down until I am ready to start again.
WHAT ABOUT YOU?
- Are you familiar with the still space?
- How do you stop your thoughts spiralling out of control?
- What can you share that might be of help to others?
Please leave your comments. I would love to hear from you.
POEM FOR TODAY
THE STILL SPACE
Sometimes our minds are hectic, thoughts are coursing fast around,
We forgot to seek the still space where confusions don’t abound,
And we’re feeling really weary and fatigue wells up anew
And for now it’s just the still space that is going to pull us through.
We have spent too long in listening to the clamour of the world,
Become deafened by its turmoil as its problems fast unfurled,
And it’s now that we’re left reeling, harmony a memory,
We have overdone the doing and fatigue’s its legacy.
So if we are feeling hectic, let us slacken off the pace,
Let the world go on without us and seek out the silent space,
And not be in too much hurry from its peacefulness to part
For there’s succour for the asking there, and comfort for the heart.
