  • What do I mean by the silent knowing?

    Unfamiliar yet well know empty hole? (The knot of fear, doubt & worry, defensive and constricted) OR bastion of peace? Side by side, interwoven, holding, nurturing, loving, forgiving...

    My Self - kinder, gentler, compassionate, strong, secure, anchored yet floating - holding lightly. The willing home to its small cousin of consciousness - bitter, spiteful, jealous, fearful, insecure - always questioning, always on guard - very old in human years, but an insignificant blip in kairos time.

    Silent knowing - not of my feeble, human construction - innate, inner globe of quiet understanding, gentle caress, supple nurturing. Hands of God, Mother, Father, Self cupped to hold my Soul and my self, selves - one at a time and all at once.

    Breath of life, bed of knowing - without thinking, without doing, without me (?) Enveloping me (?) Breathing me as a cell in its spiritual body...

    Connecting... Connected... Permeable but Solid. Hidden in plain view - a heartbeat away - a breath away - a kiss away. All that is and ever was. Always there in all its forms, holding the small me - supporting me - being Love for me, to me, of me. Part of ALL of my stories without my awareness - grace and blessings unrequested...
