Give Yourself to Silence

I cut out an article from The Curves Magazine Summer 2005. It is an excerpt from Small Graces by Kent Nerburn, PHD

GIVE YOURSELF TO SILENCE

If you learn how to listen, you can hear the subtle passing of magical momments.

We all have to learn how to listen. Our spirits are harp strings, played upon by the winds and the light and the passing of the hours. We must learn to hear their music, and let them raise melodies in our hearts.

Is there a greater wisdom than this to learn? To sit in utter stillness; to give oneself over to the whisper of the trees, the play of the light upon the surface of the water, the movement of the wind against the grasses on the land?

The yogis would have us cease all movement and listen to our breath.

But is it not as worthy to sit in silence and listen to the breath of God?
