The Silence of Chopping Wood and Carrying Water

Yesterday mid-afternoon I went into silence. Except for posting the blogs and leading the morning meditations I will be living unplugged for the next few days.

Why? Since my early 20’s silent retreats have been strong medicine to realign my body, mind, heart and spirit to radical changes in and around my life. Being in silence, sitting on my zafu, making simple meals, and doing kinhin in the morning and evening helps me sink into the “what-isness” of the infinite moment.

Within the silence the ordinary becomes extraordinary…
In this silence fear cannot live.
