“True inward quietness is not vacancy, but stability—the steadfastness of a single purpose.” ~Caroline Stephen
It’s so easy to think of quiet as an absence or an emptiness of noise and excitement, but a true inner quietness is not an emptiness at all. It is a matter of knowing what matters and staying focused on without being distracted by all the surrounding chaos.
Of course, this requires knowing your single purpose, knowing what matters in your life beyond all else to know where to focus.
How do you live into this inner quietness that is a stable steadfastness?
