Silence of the Soul

quote from Streams in the Desert

Release• a complicated word, a hard task, completely contrary to our survival instinct [to remember everything and protect ourselves from future pain]. But it is ever so important. When the accumulation of our little worries is screaming in our heads, it is impossible to hear the whisper of a gentle and patient and often quiet God. In the moment-yes the very second-that we stop being afraid, the shouting stops and the right things become abundantly clear. Tread softly through the caverns of the mind and only set your foot upon the promises of hope. For strolls in the darkness can be more deafening than you realize and the Spirit rarely yells.
