Unconditioned Stillness — by Rick Hanson

This is a wonderful little essay on stillness.
Stillness, a sense of the unchanging, is all around.

For example, it’s not the ultimate stillness, but there is that lovely feeling when the house is quiet and you’re sitting in peace, the dishes are done and the kids are fine (or the equivalent), and you can really let down and let go. In your character, you have enduring strengths and virtues and values; situations change, but your good intentions persist. In relationships, love abides -- even for people who drive you crazy!

To use a traditional saying: May that which is still be that in which your mind delights.
