Mindfulness: Steal Moments of Attentive Silence in a Busy World



OPENNESS 

'What the world needs most is openness: Open hearts, open doors, open eyes, open minds, open ears, open souls.'

Robert Muller


LISTENING ENLIVENS THE HEART

'Whatever difficulty you face, there are time-tried ways you can listen your way through. Because listening is the doorway to everything that matters. It enlivens the heart the way breathing enlivens the lungs. We listen to awaken our heart. We do this to stay vital and alive.'

Mark Nepo


A LOVING SILENCE

'The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen.  Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention.... A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words.'

Rachel Naomi Remen



MINDFULNESS OPENS THE HEART

'I counsel thee, shut not thy heart nor thy library.'

Charles Lamb



'Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart.'

Carl Jung

'A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words.' So many times I've held back from visiting someone troubled because I felt I didn't have the words to say ... When all the time I could have offered what I can provide so well, a loving silence.

Me too, Jean. Silence is always a kind offering.
