“Silences in which you can actually breathe again”

“… Silences in which you can actually breathe again, and breathe in a way in which your body is not tense or set against the world — you know? A silence in which there’s a sense of spaciousness and of discovery …

“Every morning when you wake up you should really ask yourself, and remind yourself, what it is that you were born in this world for.”

– David Whyte
