The virgin point within the heart is like a pure diamond blazing with the invisible light of heaven. It is in everybody. And if we could see it we would see these billions of points of light coming together in the face and blaze of a sun that would make all the darkness and cruelty of life vanish completely. The Gate of Heaven is everywhere…..Thomas Merton
what is balanced stillness? what sings its quiet rush into our soul when we immerse in nature? who hears our ancient call?
Something quite wonderful occurs when we are listened to fully. We expand, ideas come to life and grow, we remember who we are. Some speak of this force as a creative fountain within us that springs forth; others call it the inner spirit, intelligence, true self. Whatever this force is called, it shrivels up when we are not listened to and it thrives when we are. The way we listen can actually allow the other person to bring forth what is true and alive within them………Kay Lindahl
That is the hardest thing of all?
What seems the easiest to you:
to use your eyes to see
what lies in front of them.
