Meditation

There is rarely enough silence in our services.
Perhaps we are too busy for silence.
Perhaps we are afraid of what we might discover.
Today we will give silence its place.
Today our meditation will include several minutes of silence, a luxury in this far from silent world.

Let us pause to listen to the unheard world . . .

Relax into a comfortable position . . .

Breathe in and out very slowly . . .

Quiet yourself and listen to the rhythm of your breath, your heart . . .

Listen to the silence . . .

You will think something . . .
    let it pass into you and through you . . .

You will feel something . . .
    let it pass into you and through you . . .

Spend some time in the unheard world . . .

(Several minutes of silence)

We begin to return now to the world we usually hear . . .

As you do, try to bring something of that unheard world with you . . .

And, remember to give yourself permission to return to the unheard world. Amen.
