Morning Meditation, April 24, 2020
We continue today our focus on the richness of silence. Enjoy this quiet time, along with readings from M. Basil Pennington and Marianne Williamson.
From M. Basil Pennington:
Unfortunately, in seeing ourselves as we truly are, not all that we see is beautiful and attractive. This is undoubtedly part of the reason we flee silence. We do not want to be confronted with our hypocrisy, our phoniness. We see how false and fragile is the fake self we project. We have to go through this painful experience to come to our true self. It is a harrowing journey, a death to self – the false self – and no one wants to die. But it is the only path to life, to freedom, to peace, to true love. And it begins with silence. We cannot give ourselves in love if we do not know and possess ourselves. This is the great value of silence. It is the pathway to all we truly want.
And from Marianne Williamson:
In a noisy world, seek the silence in your heart. And through the power of silence, the energies of chaos will be brought back to harmony – not by you, but through you, as all miracles are. When we visit this silence regularly, particularly in the morning, then the days of our lives become lit from above. Darkness and fear are cast from our midst, slowly at first, one moment at a time. Ultimately, all darkness will be gone from every heart.
Have a wonderful day!
