The degree of stillness which will be experienced can be measured by the extent to which one relinquishes their dependency on the external world of form and places trust and confidence in stillness.
At first, you may not understand why practicing ceaselessly to develop stillness has anything to do with your being happy, successful, or healthy. You may not even be able to see what connection stillness has with the mundane affairs of life. You will only discover this through your own experience because regardless of any information one may offer to you as to what their discoveries have been, or the thousands of lives that have had so called spiritual experiences, you will not be convinced until you yourself have had the actual experience. Every person who has known dissatisfaction, incompleteness, and frustration will someday learn that there is only one missing link in his entire chain of harmonious living and that is the presence of stillness; consciously, daily, and hourly.
The secret of harmonious living is the development of stillness which is spiritual consciousness. In that consciousness, fear and anxiety disappear, and life becomes meaningful with fulfillment at its core. The degree of stillness or if you like spiritual consciousness which will be experienced can be measured by the extent to which one relinquishes their dependency on the external world of form and places trust and confidence in stillness. It stillness we can overcome every obstacle and it is in the presence of stillness that these obstacles simply fall away.
