Stillness

Tuesday, June 30, 2015

As I came down from the mountain, I recalled how, not many years ago, it was access to information and movement that seemed our greatest luxury; nowadays it’s often freedom from information, the chance to sit still, that feels like the ultimate prize. Stillness is not just an indulgence for those with enough resources—it’s a necessity for anyone who wishes to gather less visible resources.

~ Pico Iyer, The Art of Stillness: Adventures in Going Nowhere, 2014

Very true. These days, I'd like to get away (even stay away) from keeping up with all these apps, keyboards and phones. I think that we are starting to forget how to really live.
