Mystical Mondays ~ Kabir on why to be silent




The other week I was listening to a wise man, Dr. Dan Gottlieb, speak on how it is important to give our brains extended breaks. Near the end of the segment he spoke of going on silent retreats. Within a few days, I had booked myself five days of self-directed retreat time at the Jesuit Center.

Kabir tells another reason why it is a fine thing to provide our brain some silence ~

A Great Pilgrimage

I felt in need of a great pilgrimage
so I sat still for three
days

and God came
to me

    1. Nance ~ I know of it but have not read it. Have you? Dr Dan is a local treasure here in the Philly area and I often hear his voice as I commute to work on Monday mornings while listening to NPR

  3. I used to think I was a great multi-tasker, but now I know I'm simply a multi-asker. Always questioning.
