finding guidance with silence

the quieter you become the more you are able to hear – Rumi

There’s so much sound and visual noise it may seem like a foreign idea to turn it off our computers, phones etc or as some put it unplug. To walk into a quiet room really would be unusual. It’s more than unplugging for me. It’s having silence so I can let my mind wander. Finding guidance with silence.

there is a voice that doesn’t use words, listen – Rumi

your map only needs to be clear to you

Though we have instructions and a map buried in our hearts when we enter this world Joy Harjo

When the map or path is clear – it only needs to be clear to you.

the revealing light of summer

The bright light of summer reveals, what’s alive and what’s dead.

In the summer we can look at a tree and clearly see if it is alive or dead and maybe it’s only some branches that are dead. It ‘s those dead branches that are a distraction and still take energy away from the part of the plant that is still alive. The bright light of summer reveals and last longer than any other time of the year. I believe that during the summer more than any other time of the year we’re can clearly see and are made aware of the dead wood.

The question is – are we able to or can we do anything about those dead branches on the tree or in our lives?

more u-turns

Getting stuck and you’re facing more u-turns. You’re on a treadmill and you feel like you keep making the same mistake or turn or you think you’re not moving. This situation or feeling, I think can best be described by the quotes or prose from Pema Chödrön, and TS Eliot. The hope is that we when we make that loop we’ll have a different perspective.

Nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know  Pema Chödrön

And to make and end is to make a beginning. TS Eliot
