This is a crosspost from a Simple Blissful Life. It is one of the posts in my continuing series on Finding Stillness, my ways of becoming still within within without meditating. Follow the tag to read the other posts.
I have an A4 sketchbook next to my bed. It has one of my favorite pens clipped to it, and a couple of times a week, I grab it to make a doodle in it.
The moment I grab my pen, and uncap it, something happens in me. I become still. I doodle, each line a breath, and the more I scribble, the more I become me.
Doodling isn’t making art.
Doodling is play.
Doodling is stillness.
