Meditation - Awe – Silence

  • Get away from the ‘pressure and stress of the world’- once a year for several days. Once a day for a few minutes empty your head (and your stomach); make room for new things and new ideas.
  • Sit down, close your eyes, be silent and listen to your inner voice – look inwardly.
  • Shut off your intelligence, letting random thoughts come and go. Should a good thought emerge, take your pen and write it down. Writing forces you to order your thoughts into coherent sentences, comprehensible to yourself as well as for others.
  • ‘You‘re not really awake when you don‘t write. You have no idea who you are, not to mention who you are not.’ (Pascal Mercier)

When I sit and observe the diversity and beauty of nature I am filled with reverence and humility about the great mystery - that cannot be grasped with our intelligence alone.
