Identifying stillness with the feminine still seems erroneous. I identify stillness as a state wherein re-balancing takes place and balance is achieved. From that point you can do everything and nothing. Its significance is determined largely by how you reach that state. To say stillness "is" this or that implies that there is only one way to be still. It's like trying to put the infinite inside a box.
To clarify: I'm speaking of the infinite Self, not God, the universe, what have you.
