“Watch any plant or animal and let it teach you acceptance of what is, surrender to the Now.
Let it teach you Being.
Let it teach you integrity — which means to be one, to be yourself, to be real.
Let it teach you how to live and how to die, and how not to make living and dying into a problem.”

— Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

Today I learned

that if I sit in silence

no talking

or

no videos playing on the phone

the finches will come

unafraid to the feeder.

Why do I fear silence when it has so much to teach?

For in silence I am able to see things that bring great joy.

In silence I am able to rise above my thoughts.

In silence I am able to truly see and hear.

In silence I am able to surrender

to the NOW.

Silence is my friend.

XO Lisa

  4. There is much to be said about moments of silence as it allows the day to come to us, on its own terms.
