“Will you travel with me? Our destination involves both learning and liberation. It focuses on a process, not a goal to be produced; it is a matter of finding new meaning, not new mechanics.

I picked him up and embraced him. We sat as I rubbed his head comforting him with soothing words. I then remembered an amazing clip I had watched by Spiritual Literacy called “the bird who needs to be silent”
As I remembered that stillness within, I didnt feel the need to speak nor let him go on his way too early –
I was just with him, present in the heart space, unconditionally, until he was ready to get going again. To my surprise he fell asleep. It was an amazing experience and maybe one of the greatest gifts we can give to another- to be totally present, unconditionally, with all ones being and love.
