Most people live by the speed of their minds and miss everything. The soul operates at a much slower pace, at a point of standing still, because there really is no movement. Movement is an illusion of the mind.
When you are standing still, which is your natural state, your mind wants to speed things up. This morning my mind threw lots of problems at me, it was a huge list, and than my mind came up with solutions. I simply observed how active my mind was allowing it to go anywhere it wanted without me putting any judgment on it until it became still again.
Always perceive you have a choice and never make it, that's the present.
Stillness is awareness.
