A stillness in the chaos

A stillness in the chaos

The idea behind this mantra is the need to prioritize finding moments of quiet and calm to rest the mind, even in the midst of busy schedules and whatever troubles might be causing distress. In a way, it is a reminder that meditating or focusing on something soothing is a kind of self care that exists briefly so that you are able to jump back into the fray with grace and calm. There were three visual ideas that I had in mind as I designed this image:

1. A swimmer suspended at the surface of a current, letting their natural buoyancy keep them afloat,

2. A sunset over an ocean whose tide is flowing over a beach, and

3. A rebounding droplet of water displaced from a previous splash, hovering in a perfect sphere before falling and rejoining the larger body of water.
