“When you lose touch with inner stillness, you lose touch with yourself. When you lose touch with yourself, you lose yourself in the world.”

“Your innermost sense of self, of who you are, is inseparable from stillness.
This is the I Am that is deeper than name and form.”  Eckhart Tolle

“Your duty is to be and not to be this or that. ‘I am that I am’ sums up the whole truth. The method is summed up in the words ‘Be still’. What does stillness mean? It means destroy yourself. Because any form or shape is the cause for trouble. Give up the notion that ‘I am so and so’. All that is required to realize the Self is to be still. What can be easier than that?”
Ramana Maharshi

“If the mind falls asleep, awaken it. Then if it starts wandering, make it quiet. If you reach the state where there is neither sleep nor movement of mind, stay still in that, the natural (real) state.”
Ramana Maharshi, The Collected Works of Ramana Maharshi

“Remain still, with the conviction that the Self shines as everything yet nothing, within, without, and everywhere.”
Ramana Maharshi
