Shine…

 

 

“Awareness is like the sun. When it shines on things they are transformed.”
~ Thich Nhat Hanh

 


Quote from Contemplative Monk (FaceBook)

For the sake of all

The air is charged with anticipation. This call to awareness certainly seems personal as the cold of winter often draws us inward. There is attention to the pace of life, re-setting our movement with the day as we look for hints of what is to come. Yes, this reminder to be alert stirs within each of us but it is a stirring we share. We stay alert so that when the gift of love and grace arrives it can be announced throughout creation.
We take our post to watch for the sake of all.

Into the peace of wild things…

 

I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief…
For a time I rest in the grace of the world,
and am free.

Saturday Morning

at a time when one note is so healing. thank you, David.

Here I am alone with silence.

I have discovered that it is enough when a single note is beautifully played.

This one note, or a silent beat, or a moment of silence, comforts me.

~ Arvo Pärt, in Arvo Pärt by Paul Hillier
