In my last post I felt a need to purge, offer, and share, but now I come to silence.
May we also meet there.
Frank Ostaseski describes it well in The Five Invitations:
“Deep silence is not merely a pause between sounds. It is an inner quietness felt in the heart, still as new-fallen snow on a mountain pass. This silence strips us of both belief and disbelief. It takes us beyond the known, beyond language, and into the sacred.
Silence is a natural response to the presence of the sacred no matter where it appears. Through silence, we become aware of the majesty in the ordinary; the beauty, the unity, and the depth of the sacred that is always around and within us.”
Blessings on us all as we transition from one year to the next.
