‘When silence is intentionally used to understand ourselves, then it will reveal many secrets to us. I see silence in this respect as being compassionate, because it does tell me the truth and it calls me to do the work of holding space for that truth, which is the work of spiritual transformation.’ (Love andRage)
I often ask, in my meditation sessions, what arises in the silence? The first step is to pay attention to it, to allow it room; the second step is to respond to what it tells us.

I want to hold myself in the silence. I want to sit down beside myself and watch the river flow by itself.
Then let go of trying to hold….
Would it make more sense if I just sat with myself??
