      to your heart,
  finding out who you are,
         is not simple.
It takes time for
     the chatter to quiet down.
In the silence of "not doing"
       we begin to know
          what we feel.
If we listen & hear
   what is being offered,
       then anything in life
can be our guide.

~ Katelyn Rahdene Langford

I found this poem on the wall at a retreat center a few years ago. Reading it again reminds me of that precious time being steeped in silence for ten days. What comes to mind is that now is the time to listen to my heart. Each moment holds the possibility to know what we feel. In the silence of "not doing" I find my retreat.
