Simply Lent 5…

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

Rumi


Thank you, Karl Duffy, @Mindfulbalance
