Insight from Eckhart Tolle's Stillness Speaks
children are capable of great stillness. Though we think of them as noisy and
highly active, all of this boisterousness springs from a backdrop of stillness.
soon, though, as children grow they no longer take time to just sit, ponder,
and be. They learn to be anxious in the way adults are. That’s when troublesome
behavior tends to arise.
