my quietness

The first half of life is building a strong container or identity, the second is finding the contents.’*

We are seekers and life is about seeking.

Two great practices for developing our ability to seek: solitude and silence.

When we hone the skills of seeking, the closest, most familiar, and mundane things – or so we have seen them – become places of wonder and fullness.

‘Genuinely living for something, day after day, is much more valuable than looking for a blaze of glory at the end.’**

(*From Richard Rohr’s Falling Upward.)

(*From Chris Guillebeau’s The Happiness of Pursuit.)
