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.
