The sound of quiet

“The longer I wake on this Earth, the louder the quiet things speak to me. The more I experience and survive, the more I find truth in the commonalities we all share. The more pain softens me, the deeper my joy and the greater the lessons of those things that live in great stillness.”

~Mark Nepo

A beautiful meditation accompanies his writing:

  • Sit quietly and consider your thoughts as leaves and your heart as a tree.
  • Breath slowly, and try to listen to the soil you share with everything.
  • Breath deeply, and meditate on what is oldest in you.

#beintentional – Day 10 – Accepting

For Day 10 of my 10-day personal #beintentional campaign, I’m asking myself:

When today did I observe what was happening with acceptance and without judgment?

To me this does not mean I don’t set high goals and intend great outcomes (I want to be like Pip and have great expectations – rather, it means letting go of having to know what the solution looks like and opening to even more than I can imagine being possible or realizing that the path to the outcome or goal is different than I expected.
