Our Outdoor spaces become sacred spaces when we realize them as places of growth not only for plants and trees but also for ourselves. Our outdoor spaces are places to restore our balance spiritually and emotionally and nourish our soul away from all the noise of everyday life.
Tuning out does not necessarily mean we are not being affected. It simply means we've chosen to not be aware of how much our spirit is disturbed by outside influences.
If you love truth, be a lover of silence. Silence like the sunlight will illuminate you in God....Thomas Merton
