What is stillness or, as the stoics called it, apatheia
Staying steady while the world spins around you. It means reacting without frenzy. Hearing only what needs to be heard. Stillness means to possess quietude, both interior and exterior, on command. The concept of stillness is a pathway that leads to excellence, it improves performance, inspires ideas and refines perspective, it enables us to persevere, to resist the passions of the masses and make space for gratitude and wonder. In reality most philosophers and world religions revere this stillness or inner peace as supreme well-being and the secret to a happy life. To achieve stillness we need to reduce the disturbances and the chaos that make it impossible, by concentrating on three specific things: mind, body and soul.
