Presence in Silence

“Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.” – John Muir

“Silence is not the absence of something but the presence of everything . . . It is the presence of time, undisturbed. It can be felt within the chest. Silence nurtures our nature, our human nature, and lets us know who we are. Left with a more receptive mind and a more attuned ear, we become better listeners not only to nature but to each other. Silence can be carried like embers from a fire. Silence can be found, and silence can find you.” – Gordon Hempton

Sew silence into each day.
To reorient, discover, expand.
From nothing to something.
Listen. Observe. Wonder.

“Doing nothing often leads to the very best of something.” – Pooh
