“If we had keen vision and feeling for all ordinary human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow and the squirrels heart beat, and we would die of the roar which lies on the other side of silence.”
In the stillness of the night and within the silence within me there is pause to reflect. I see life anew.
Kent Nerburn in Voices of the Stones describes it this way, “To hear that water had wisdom because it moved around obstacles and did not contend, or that a true leader should learn from the sea, which draws all water to it by taking the lowest place, was not so much a revelation as a confirmation of what I had known and felt but never been able to articulate. It was nature as teacher.”
I am grateful for the depth of creation within the ordinary that surrounds me.
May we all be blessed to pause within our silent moments to see and feel the essence of the Divine.
