The Magnificent Silence Between Thoughts

The silence between the bumps and burbles of our “monkey” mind’s endless river of thoughts contains the universe. We sometimes (but very rarely) feel its presence during meditation.

As we sit in our homes during this lockdown period, separated from all familiar routines, the stardust of our being is a little easier access.

On a busy street still as stone; calm and quiet; not alone.

Morning

Warm fingers reach out 
Tearing their way through jewels 
Of deep blue velvet

There is magic in this city as the sun begins to rise and the streets still sleep.

An Appreciation Of Shadows

Hiding in the gloom of our lives are memories of things gone and yet to come. If we allow ourselves to be comfortable in this sometimes troubled low light place, slowly there will come peace.

Just Sitting

Meditation quiets our “monkey” minds. My hope is that more people discover this lovely, powerful technique.

Quiet Time

This small plant stem blowing in the breeze contains in it the dust of stars. If we can understand it we will know all there is to know.
