Shared Wisdom: And The Words Keep Coming

It seems as though there is an endless supply of words in this world, and so many people can use them creatively.  They capture my attention and my heart.  Sometimes I feel a little envious when I experience the way some writers put their words together.  At times they seem to roll around in my mouth, at others they slip or trip off the tongue.  Sometimes they are clear and sharp, and at other times they are sweet and soft.  And then there are times when they seem to bounce off the page, dance in front of my eyes, shout to the skies, or create a quiet place like a chapel hush.  I just like words and what can be done with them.  Here are a few such groupings of words.

 

“Remember, you can’t reach for what’s in front of you until you let go of what’s behind you.”       Author unknown

“I always begin my prayer in silence, for it is in the silence of the heart that God speaks.  God is the friend of silence – we need to listen to God
  because it’s not what we say, but what God says to us and through us that matters.”                   Mother Teresa

“It is when God appears to have abandoned us that we must abandon ourselves most wholly to God.”       Francois Fenelon

“Rhythm is our universal mother tongue.  It’s the language of the soul.”          Gabrielle Roth

“There is no love without hope, no hope without love, and neither hope nor love without faith.”         St. Augustine

“God has given us two hands, one to receive with and the other to give with.”       Billy Graham

“Be patient enough to live one day at a time as Jesus taught us, letting yesterday go and leaving tomorrow till it arrives.”      John Newton

“Faith is like radar that sees through fog.”          Corrie ten Boom

“We can make art, letting the voice of the goddess – the oracle – speak through us in words and images.”      Dorothy Maclean

“The drum is sacred. Its round form represents the whole universe, and its steady beat is the pulse,
  the heart, throbbing at the center of the universe.”            Nick Black Elk

“Life is sacred.  Life is art.  Life is sacred art.”                Gabrielle Roth

“Learning is movement from moment to moment.”            Krishnamurti

“It doesn’t have to be a big fire, a small blaze, candlelight perhaps ……….”         Ray Bradbury

“Since it is very rare in our society to be personally sung to, this experience usually awakens
  the soul and speaks to the heart, helping that person to hear and sing their own song.”       Caitlin Matthews

 

Perhaps you would like to go back to the beginning and allow these words to slip and trip and roll around in your mouth.  Perhaps you can try reading them out loud, and as you do so, listen for the loud and the soft, the sharp and the sweet, and the possible chapel hush.  Enjoy and receive blessings.
