Stillness, Movement, and Space

Stillness is the state from which all other states arise. It is always present and overlaid by movement, since body and all its cells are always in quiet motion. We are 70% water, and water is paradoxically still and moving at the same — a relationship that is dynamic, vibrant, and life-affirming.
