There is something infinitely healing
in the repeated refrains of nature-
the assurance that dawn comes after night,
and spring after winter.
it’s ok to not know how to live well….just live…..
inquiry for today~
Ask “What is this?,” then open yourself completely to what you “hear” in the silence that follows. Be open to this question in the same way as you would listen to a piece of music. Pay total attention to the polyphony of the birds and wind outside, the occasional plane that flies overhead, the patter of rain on a window. Listen carefully, and notice how listening is not just an opening of the mind but an opening of the heart, a vital concern or care for the world, the source of what we call compassion or love.
