I want to listen deeply enough that I hear everything and nothing at the same time and am made more by the enduring quality of my silence.
I want to question deeply enough that I am made more not by the answers so much as my desire to continue asking questions.
I want to speak deeply enough that I am made more by the articulation of my truth shifting into the day’s shape.
In this way, pondering and sharing become my connection to the oneness of life, and there is no longer any part of me in exile.
Richard Wagamese: Embers, One Ojibway’s Meditations
“I want to listen deeply enough…..”
“I want to question deeply enough…..”
“I want to speak deeply enough…..”
“…pondering and sharing become my connection to the oneness of life”
How do I fulfill all of these wants???????
Richard Wagamese shared another bit of wisdom. I confess that I am almost overwhelmed by the simplicity of this habit:
“I take a little time each day to sit in silence
so that I can move outward in balance
into the great clamour of living.”
Take a little time each day to sit in silence.
I lovingly invite you to simply sit in silence for a little time, today.
