Few lines from the book....
I lay in a meadow
until the unwrinkled serenity
entered into my bones,
and made me into one
with the browsing kine,
the still greenery,
the drifting clouds,
and the swooping birds.
- Alice James
You do not need to leave your room....
Remain sitting at your table and listen.
Do not even listen, simply wait.
Do not even wait, be quite still and solitary.
The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked.
It has no choice.
It will roll in ecstasy at your feet.
Over all the mountaintops
In all treetops
Scarcely a breath.
The little birds in the forest
Wait then; soon
You, too, will have peace.
-Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe.
Come away from the din,
Come away to the quiet fields,
over which the great sky stretches,
and where, between us and the stars,
there lies but silence;
and there, in the stillness
let us listen to the voice
that is speaking within us.
- Jerome K.Jerome
Leave home in the sunshine:
Dance through meadow
Or sit by a stream and just be.
The lilt of the water
Will gather your worries
And carry them down to the sea.
- J.Donald Walters
