I’m honored to share some juice from my recent camping trip to Zion National Park.

I pitched my tent next to the Virgin River and recorded her glorious melody. I've put together a simple guided meditation for you. We'll sit next to the river for a few minutes, and then sit in stillness and silence for two minutes.

Don't underestimate how sitting with me in guided meditation for eight minutes, several times this week, could be the very medicine you've been calling forth.

Have you ever heard a chorus of frogs, mating near a small creek, during the peak of Spring?

What If We Spent The Summer Exploring Stillness?

I’d certainly build us a digital campground (this landing page), with all of the inspiration and fun!

Another meaning for stillness is silence.

All teachings, religions, healers, groups, poses, and divine interventions are trying to get you to be quiet and listen.

It's quite difficult, for so many different reasons, to be still.

I recently observed a quality of silence I'd like to share with you today.

If you're like me, you have a huge to-do list. Once you solve a problem, it usually adds more items to the never-ending list.

I'm writing a prescription for you today.

From Doctor Blue...

Doctor Blue's orders.

I give you permission to remove a terribly impossible and burdensome task from your to-do list.

Forever!

You no longer to need to create silence, or quiet your thoughts, or be still!

That's right, are you hearing this?

It seems to me, the more you try and stop your thinking, force stillness, or build silence from scratch...

...the more powerful chaos becomes in your life.

I'm inviting you to surrender to stillness and silence.

They already exist.

Separately.

On their own, and of divine origin.

Your thoughts, feelings, and images of the mind, spontaneously arise from a source of stillness that's generous, expansive, and super easy to overlook.

Think of stillness like a giant canvas, and your mental constructs as paint. When you add layers of paint, the colors do not become the actual canvas, they become art.

Start seeing your thoughts and feelings—your experience, your life—as art: beautiful, complex, and multi-faceted.

Silence is the ground, the source, the starting place, the canvas, and everything that's happening in and around your being, this is the paint and color of your life.

Your mindfulness challenge job is to drop into the silence.

Descend into the stillness.

Surrender to it.

Once I realized I didn't need to create stillness or silence it became much easier for me to connect.

Your job is to sync, align with, and plug into it!

When I plunged into a thesaurus I fell down a rabbit hole of words.

I love finding words. New words to articulate your next mindful step.

What if you were to collapse into stillness?

How would you like to cascade into a guided meditation with me?

Crashing into silence might be your most effective entry point.

You could dip.

Disembark.

Dive.

Go down.

Penetrate...

Plummet

Plunge

Settle

Sink

Slide

Slip

Stumble

Subside

Swoop

Trickle

Coast

Crouch

Dismount

Dribble

Drop

Fall

Gravitate

Ground

Incline

Plop

Prolapse

Slope

Slump

Submerge

Topple

Trip

And finally, at an extreme, be courageous enough to weep yourself into stillness, if that's what you need.

Welcome to the Summer of Stillness.

Summer's here!

I hope you'll join me on this awesome Viral Mindfulness Adventure.

All my love to your mindful week,

Alexander, or Mister Blue 💎
