    SILENCE by Robert Sardello

    from: https://www.spiritualityandpractice.com/book-reviews/excerpts/view/17193 probably the best book ever on Silence; Robert Sardello on clearing space for silence and allowing grace. When we have cleared a space for the presence of Silence to enter into whatever we are doing, we feel the presence of grace in our lives. When we have gotten to the point of feeling the desire of Silence and can call to heart that feeling when we are about to begin our day and our work, we feel graced.

    Spiritual Practices: Silence

    an excellent resource on Silence Enhances: Contemplation Balances/Counters: Chaos By Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat The Basic Practice Silence is often referred to in terms of space: the immensity inside, the cave of the heart, the oasis of quiet, the inner sanctuary, the interior castle, the sacred center where God dwells.

  • When We’re Not Inventing Reality

    During Sunday morning’s wonderful Hymn Fest, I became captivated by the quality and dispersal of the light in the sanctuary.  Patterns, colours, rays, illuminations ran their quiet gamut.  For me, the light was the many manifestations of the Holy Spirit, so available in our family life right now.

  • imagine the Imagination!

    Did you know we’re living in true science fiction? Ponder that oxymoronic phrase. You see, I’ve always loved phrases that jar. They came out of my love of writing, particularly poetry, and physics. And it was truly quite a thrill to “create” people I’d never conceived of when I wrote my first novel. They walked into my space and took over, to the extent one day that I typed furiously, consumed by something “other” and finally sat back, exhausted, and said aloud, “I didn’t know that was going to happen!” You won’t be surprised, then, to know that I’m a great believer in the protection and promotion of the Imagination.…
