Stillness first

One's action ought to come out of an achieved stillness; not to be a mere rushing on.

Much of our busy-ness is just busy work. Once in a while, when we go on vacation or if we take a couple of sick days, we discover that the multitude of day-to-day tasks we hurry to complete can be set aside.

In the stillness, we find a creativity that often is sacrifice to the normal schedule. That creativity is aware of which decision and action really matter.
To rest and consider  - this is important to being human. Hurry begets more artificial rush and stress.

Stillness naturally yields wise action and contentment.

We have to have time to be still, to create a peaceful moment where we can think and ponder before deciding what we will do with our day.
