Reflection on silence
"Learn to be silent! Silent as the leaves that fall, silent as the blossoming flowers, silent as the moment before dawn. You are being summoned into the temple of silence. Practice silence, for this voiceless voice can be heard only in the shrine of silence. You are being chosen for the deepening places."
Sr. Macrina Wiederkehr, Abide
I need to learn to add more purposeful silence to my day. Especially in the moments where it's actually possible while Clara is napping or playing peacefully.
