Most religious and wisdom traditions recommend periods of more intense practice – a silent retreat, 40 days in Lent, the month of Ramadam…
A new moon teaches gradualness
and deliberation and how one gives birth
to oneself slowly. Patience with small details
makes perfect a large work, like the universe.
What nine months of attention does for an embryo
forty early mornings will do for your gradually growing wholeness
