Stillness

The Earth rotates at about1670 km/hr. While performing this unbelievable feat, it is also flying through outer space as it revolves around the sun at a speed 108,000 km/hr.

Notice how, even though the world is in a constant tizzy, it is so calm and serene for us humans. Isn’t it mind-blowing that we can sit here and sip on a tumbler of coffee without a worry in the world or enjoy a morning beside a lake that is so still; it looks like a sheet of glass? We can learn a lot from the Earth. We can learn how to maintain a calm and peaceful demeanour when everything around is haywire.

As Rudyard Kipling so rightly said “If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you, Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it, And -which is more- you’ll be a Man, my son”
