'Sometimes I sits and thinks and sometimes I just sits' says a wise saying.
The inner mind is surely marvellous. While we quietly sit back, it is ticking away, never still.
Consider for a moment some of the achievements which have resulted from people being quiet and simply thinking.
Seeking peace for his troubled soul, Galileo sat quietly all those centuries ago, and the gentle rythmic movement of a swinging lamp nearby gave him the idea of a pendulum swinging to and fro as a means of measuring the passage of time.
Isaac Newton was quietly resting when he saw an apple fall and thus began to grasp the idea behind his law of gravity.
James Watt was relaxing in his kitchen when he saw steam lifting the top of a kettle and thus the idea of power to drive a steam engine was born.
So don't feel guilty next time you want to 'just sit quietly'.
many problems are solved, new ideas come to mind and vitality is often revived by doing exactly that!
Wishing you all a happy and relaxing weekend.
Lots of love and hugs,
