Listen to the Silence

Before you begin, take a deep breathe and find the center of your being.

Take your time here, read slowly, and then again with a deeper sacred awareness. 

Speak now and help me listen.

and, if what I hear is silence,

let it quite me,

Let it disturb me,

let it touch my need,

let it break my pride,

let it shrink my certainties,

Let it increase me wonder.
