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.

“Really hearing a bird sing or really seeing a blue sky, we touch the seed of the Holy Spirit within us.”
— Thich Nhat Han
In truth, the heart must crack open if the soul is to become free.
And you simply cannot think your way into that.

A natural doorway. Obviously important as it is shaped with a vision for its purpose.
The path is intricate and beautiful – announcing intention as one approaches.
What doorways do you enter that call for preparation before stepping through its threshold?
A Friday door.
I hope you find a gateway leading to a place where you can rest and refresh.

Gratitude as a discipline involves a conscious choice. I can choose to be grateful even when my emotions and feelings are still steeped in hurt and resentment.
It is amazing how many occasions present themselves in which
I can choose gratitude instead of a complaint.
