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 –
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
‘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.
