The heart’s whisper

In the stillness of the quiet, if we listen, we can hear the whisper of the heart giving strength to weakness, courage to fear, hope to despair.


Quote: Howard Thurman

Silence

Don’t speak unless you can improve on the silence.


SPANISH PROVERB

 

from Gratefulness

So many silences

The fact that we are here and that I speak these words is an attempt to break that silence and bridge some of those differences between us, for it is not difference which immobilizes us, but silence.

And there are so many silences to be broken.

Holy Saturday

Don’t surrender your loneliness so quickly.
Let it cut more deep.
Let it ferment and season you as few human
Or even divine ingredients can.
Something missing in my heart tonight
Has made my eyes so soft,
My voice so tender,
My need of God
Absolutely clear
.


Quote: Hafiz

 

Silent space

 

Silent space is a good thing.
To know we live by grace can be great relief.
Yes, it means we may not really be in control of everything.

 

A truth we can survive and be the better for it.
