The Power of Silence

A seed grows with no sound but a tree falls with huge noise. Destruction has noise, but creation is quiet. This is the power of silence… Grow Silently. ~ Confucius

Is your home during this Covid-19 era
too silent or too loud? For me silence reigns…
except for the ubiquitous television
and the dogs campaigning to be out…
then in! The whirl of the fans,
the toilet that runs excessively,
the grandmother clock speaking up
by the quarter hour…
it certainly is silent compared
to homes not inhabited
by septuagenarians.
But is there room for the power of silence,
the awareness of the silently growing
power of creation?
Be still and be still and know that I am God.
