sacred place

We sat in silence for some time

We sat in silence for some time. It is a very, very difficult thing to do -- to sit in silence. Our world is filled with sounds, and we've come to feel that we must fill any void we encounter with our voices, or the radio, or the TV; almost anything will do, as long as we're not burdened by deafening silence. But there is a special beauty, I was coming to see, a special peace in quiet that is beyond words or the trappings of this world. But, oh, it is so difficult not to speak!

~ from THE MESSIAH STONES by Irving Benig

May 1996 (Vol. IX, No. 5)

BLESSINGS Friends! MAy the inner gifts of beauty, peace, integrity and harmony be reflected in the outer sared spaces of your life!

A place in the heart

Perhaps the City of God is not so much a place in space, as a place in the heart.

~ Madeleine L'Engle
