Silence of Listening

In the silence

of listening,

you can know yourself

in everyone,

the unseen

singing softly

to itself and to you.

Lovely and true :) Here is another thought.

"We must bring the memory into silence, that the Spirit alone may be heard, saying with the prophet: 'Speak, Lord, your servant
is listening.'"

- St. John of the Cross

Thank you friends. I left you with this meditation as I went on silent retreat this past week. The retreat was lovely - especially the rich, and active silence.
