Sometimes I find myself becoming unsure of where I stand when I become still and quiet. Suddenly, I can feel somewhat diminished when I am silent and touching that humility that appears when in a state of being. At times I have sat with people I love and “Don’t know what to say”, only because I feel I “Have to say something.” I am conditioned to believe that words and language are the only valuable way to connect. I may not have anything to “verbalize” but I do have lots to communicate. I noticed that all levels of communication open when I allow myself to breathe and reconnect to the body and presence. Not only is there nothing to say, but saying anything produces a barrier between me, experience, and others.
