Deep Quiet and Qigong

By Kristina

This warm day I’m treasuring quiet – occasional bird song through an open window, my studio fountain evoking a small mountain spring, now and then a breeze stirring a wind chime, that’s all.  I’ve lived enough years in cities to appreciate the rarity and privilege in this.  Soon I’ll climb the sixteen steps to my loft overlooking our blooming cherry tree for my daily Qigong practice, and the quiet will deepen within me.

I had so many things to share with you this month!  My mind buzzed with them, but I went out into the sunlight,  listened to the honey bees buzzing in the cherry blossoms, and the quiet seems more important.  I wish you the same.

    I really agree with you about the value of silence, Kristina, and with those who assert that the barrage of non-natural sounds we absorb every day is unhealthy. Here’s a relevant quote by Richard Rohr: “The ego gets what it wants with words. The soul finds what it needs in silence.”
