Can stillness speak?

Mike Heseltine, 59

In lockdown, I am experiencing more stillness. The constant chatter in my mind has become calm and the space between my thoughts has become greater. Experiencing this space reminds me of a visit to a cathedral where I stood before a faceless tomb. There was an overwhelming feeling of timelessness. I began to witness my thoughts fading away. From a place of stillness, I was no longer my thoughts. Within that space between thoughts, I felt connected.
