To be awakened…

Those who are awake live in a constant state of amazement.

A rare and beautiful country

It began in mystery and it will end in mystery,
but what a rare and beautiful country lies in between.

Whisper of the heart

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.

"In the stillness of the quiet, if we listen,". How do we listen to quiet? It may have nothing to do with the work of our ears. Listening to quiet is the work of the heart, the delight of the soul.

Heart and soul – always waiting for us to slow down, to settle in a way that only our breath is noticed. Only then are we still enough to receive the gifts of heart and soul. Their gifts of strength, courage and hope.

When the world is quiet – listen. May you hear the heart's whisper as it rekindles courage and hope.

Quote: HOWARD THURMAN

Intellect’s path


Intellect takes you to the door, but it doesn’t take you into the house.

My Best Prayer 

Be thou my vision,O Lord of my heart,
Be all else but naught to me,
Save that thou art;
Be thou my best thought
In the day and the night,
Both waking and sleeping,
Thy presence my light.
Lyrics: unknown but attributed to Iris Christian poet, Saint Dallân, translated by Eleanor Hull
Music: Irish/Celtic
