I was just making some final edits to my intended blog post about packing lightly and living reverently when I accidentally deleted the whole edited post. I tried desperately to recover it without success. It is unretrievable.
I don’t think it’s a mistake that I deleted the intended blog post. Life works quite mysteriously at times.
I don’t have enough time to re-write the post tonight, so I sit quietly and wonder what to do..
Then I remember that what I have really wanted to offer you is a holding space of deep, healing silence, although I haven’t known how to offer that in a blog that requires words until now. Through mishap and silence, this is what spontaneously emerges….
My invitation to you is to take a few deep breaths and feel how life is supporting you right now. Maybe you are supported by a chair or seat of some kind, or the ground beneath your feet.
Notice how your breath moves in and out of your chest. Brining new life. Releasing what is old.
Maybe you can hear sounds, birds, traffic, voices.
I invite you to listen more deeply.
Beneath the noise is a container of silence all around you. It is protective and nourishing. Calming and soothing. Just listen and feel.
Take a few moments out of this often busy, rushing, noisy modern world we live in to feel rested and renewed and totally supported.
From this place of deep silence, maybe there is something that wants to be known to you, something that will serve your life and journey now. Or maybe it’s just the silence you need to know more wholly. Most of us do.
Whether you receive words or silence, it is all a blessing. You are held and supported right here and now. Breathe and rest here.
.All is well.
With love, courage and the peace of silence,
