After yesterdays blog on Wayne Dyers quote 'Don't die with the music still inside you....', I found this quote by Christina Rossetti on-line, and decided to dip into this topic some more. Here are some musings on the musicality of silence.
Silence is the womb of all creation.
The space before time began.
It is a cauldron bubbling with pure potential and a space of infinite renewal.
It is the space between each heart beat,
and the space between each breath as well as the space between all sound.
Silence is, just as I am.
Silence beats its own drum,.
Silence - a call from the Universe, bringing us home to the majesty of the Self.

Tomorrow is Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere. We are about to experience the shortest day and the longest night, before the sun turns its radiant face back towards us,offering hope and new life even as we are still cloaked in the depths of mid winter.
In the hurly burly of our festive preparations, spare a thought for the true meaning of Christmas. Yes it is a time for celebration, as well as a time for children. It is a time to celebrate the wonder of life and a future still laden with possibility for the common good even amid the heart-ache of all the hurt we see in the world right now.
