Make the determination today to sit still each day and still the mind through meditation -- through focusing the mind and preventing distraction.

Eat, a restaurant in the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn, serves a capacity crowd of 17 people a four-course dinner (plus palette cleansers) of organic locavore fare in 90 minutes of total silence on the first Sunday night of every month.
Nicholas Nauman, Eat’s young managing chef and events planner, said he was inspired to host the meals by silent breakfasts he enjoyed at a monastery in the Indian Buddhist pilgrimage city of Bodh Gaya.

|Young Kate Moss|
Models, through their photos, display an alert stillness. They say a picture tells a thousand stories, and when I look at a beautifully taken image of a professional model I can see a million. There's something captivating about Kate Moss' eyes and face. It doesn't move, it doesn't really age, it's timeless.
Her pose is so pure and innocent, so still and alert. If I was to train a young woman on how to model I'd show her pictures of Kate Moss and without saying any words I think she would understand the essence of modelling.
Kate is effortless, serene, and graceful. She has that x-factor that makes a beautiful girl more than just a pretty face but makes her a model. Her eyes stare off into the distance; no thoughts, no disturbances, just a peaceful alertness.

I read a very inspiring post on The Purpose Fairy website titled, The Wisdom of Silence: Learning to Talk Less and Say More. This website is about silence, more specifically the beauty and power that arises from alert stillness. I think the post will be a good read for all trying to get to grips with the vision of what I want people to get from this website and from the silence. Enjoy reading it, here.
