Openings: “Enter Into The Quiet

Let us seek the quiet and the calm
Let us lay aside our loud calling
Let us lay aside our struggle

Speak softly: let us listen to the melodies that recall
other proportions

Our moments tarry not with us
Let us then seek the dimension that endures
beyond all nowness and hereness
beyond all requirement and all particularity

Let us speak softly that we may hear
Let us enter into the quiet.
