QUIETING DOWN 

CAT FORSLEY ©

THE QUIETING DOWN OF SOUL 

YES -THERE WILL ALWAYS BE STORMS AND THUNDER 

THE QUIETING DOWN OF SPIRIT

YES – THERE WILL ALWAYS BE THOSE  – IN AWE MOMENTS 

THE QUIETING DOWN OF BODY 

YES- THERE WILL ALWAYS BE SOMEWHERE TO GO 

THE QUIETING DOWN OF HEART 

YES- I WILL ALWAYS HEAR THE HEART BEAT 

THE QUIETING DOWN OF MIND 

YES – THERE WILL ALWAYS BE CONTEMPLATION

THE QUIETING 

IT BREATHES YES INTO NOW 

AND YES INTO THE NEXT NOW 

THE QUIETING KNOWS 

THAT REST 

IN ALL REALMS 

HEART 

MIND 

BODY 

SOUL 

EQUALS 

QUIETER WORLD .

A QUIETER INNER 

AND OUTER WORLD.

REST IN COMFORT 

REST IN SILENCE 

REST IN SIMPLICITY 

REST IN RETREAT OF MIND 

AND…

COME BACK 

TO 

A WORLD 

THAT HAS BEEN QUIETED BY 

YOU .

NURTURED BY 

YOU .

LOVED BY 

YOU .

TAKEN CARE OF BY 

YOU .

YOU ALONE HOLD THE QUIETING .

ONE HEART 

ONE SOUL 

ONE BODY 

ONE MIND 

ONE WORLD

  2. Thank you for reminding me of a quieter inner world. I really needed this today as I broke a love a year ago today and denied the truth I need to acknowledge within myself. That it’s over. Kaput. Your LOVING reminder sings of sweet pinkings I need to keep for myself. Thank you.

    Pink.

  3. wow, excellent

    the first thing I thought of while reading this was when the zen master tells the student “there is no such thing as silence, the wind always sings and the animals always chatter, even the sun drums downward in a bright and touching sound.”

    the student ask’s “How can you hear the sun?”

    the master replies, “by being silent.”

    (hadn’t thought of that one in years… I’ll now have to post it (~_~) thanks Catxx
