It is difficult to put into words something that was about experience; beyond words.
Thinking back to those first few visits on cold Sunday mornings last winter, I now understand that I was further removed from my inner self than I was able to admit.
Over a period of weeks I began a journey back to a place of greater peace I’d all but forgotten, but in truth had never left me.
A source of strength, quiet and timeless inspiration.
It’s not that the day to day demands and responsibilities of life have changed much. They’ve not. As you have gathered it’s not in my nature to take the easy options. Put simply I’m now comfortable to stand aside and to allow myself some better options and other ways of thinking.
Unexpectedly I’m discovering the power of simply waiting and doing nothing. Many years ago I came across a line of verse by T.S. Elliot. It intrigued me and obviously left an impression. Recently, these words came back to mind. This time with meaning.
‘So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing’.
