For your consideration…

I would have thought that finding a picture for today’s message would be easy but not so. The above one is not exact but I picked it because it looks like something I have done in the past during retreats. In fact, it was during one of these nature walks that I was given the task to write a book and given the name for it.

We have many messages about being silent and listening for the messages of our Guidance. Today’s message is different. It tells us that Mother Earth is never silent. Of course, sometimes she is hard to ignore like in the thunderstorm we had earlier in the week. But most often she is much more subtle and if we are silent we can hear her. If we were sitting together and became silent, we would no doubt hear different things. Different sounds would call out to us.

The reason it was hard to find a picture is because our message is not talking about clearing space to sit in silence. It is about moments. It is about noticing the sounds of Mother Earth both in the home and outside. Notice when birds call out to you. Notice when the wind chimes call out to you. Notice the day sounds. Notice the night sounds. Notice the difference.

The point of today’s message is about noticing when a sound grabs your attention and ask the questions why. Is it an affirmation to a thought? Are we being called to do something different?

That is the HOPE. And so it is.
