"In order to see birds it is necessary to become part of the silence." Robert Lynd Birds are very active but if you can sit quietly something fascinating happens. First there's a lot of movement among the birds and in your body. Slowly you begin to relax as you watch them. As your breathing slows the birds begin to lose their fear of you and the magic begins to happen. They start to move close and they ignore you because you have become a part of nature. The light summer breeze touches your cheek, relaxation deepens and time slows down. If you maintain this relaxed state, time ceases to exist and you find yourself in a unique space. You hear and see everything at once. Time slows down and you are One with the moment. The relaxing feeling of quietude fills your soul. This is a state of Stillness.
