The Unfolding of Life…..


“Wrapped within young leaves:
the sound of water.”  ~ Soseki

Wrapped within young leaves is the sound of water that will nourish them once they have opened. It’s already there prompting them to unfold and grow. To believe that this is possible requires a faith in currents larger than any one mind can envision. But that is not such a difficult thing to accept, for as dust owes its path to the wind, we as human beings, are asked to acknowledge that something larger than us encircles us and prompts us to unfold.

There is a gravity of the spirit that pulls the essence of who we are into being. Our job, like all our sister creatures, is to find the abundance of air and water and light, and to unfold what is already within us.” – Extract taken from The Book of Awakening By Mark Nepo
