contemplation

Contemplation is the mental discipline that detaches you, even neurologically, from your addiction to your way of thinking in general, and your left brain in particular ...you start venturing out into much broader ways of knowing, which frankly are much more compassionate because they are not dualistic.

all night

All night my heart makes its way however it can over the rough ground of uncertainties, but only until night meets and then is overwhelmed by morning, the light deepening, the wind easing and just waiting, as I too wait (and when have I ever been disappointed?) for the redbird to sing.

still point

The best way to break through any barrier is to access
a point of perfect stillness at the center of your being,
a self deeper than your senses or your mind.

events

There is within each of us a modulation, an inner exaltation, which lifts us above the buffetings with which events assail us. Likewise, it lifts us above dependence upon the gifts of events for our joy.

-Dr. Albert Schweitzer
