Sits and Thinks....

'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,

               June xx

Thankyou June, sometimes we forget to do just that in this ratrace world. So good to be reminded how important it is. B xxxx

Sadly, we live in a world where sitting quietly is thought to be laziness. If one isn't running 24/7, if one actually enjoys moments of quiet, they're looked upon as not being productive. Which is too bad, because as you've just shared, much good arises from quiet, introspective times.

Have a lovely weekend,

Finally I have permission to just sit. I do it so well! :o)

By the way, June, if you ever heard CocoRosie, you wouldn't be sitting. You would be jumping up and turning off the radio!

That does sound good, sometimes it is nice to just sit and think. I like the open hands lady, a lovely piece. Hope you are having a nice weekend.
