There is a silence which predates time. It was there before you were born and will be there when you die. The Buddha called this silence, “empty space, the home of the awakened mind.” To the mystic, the deepest Silence is the voice of the eternal calling us home to our true self.
The Silence which awakens us to our true nature has also been referred to as Silent Awareness, the Eternal, God, Buddha Mind, Christ Consciousness, Presence, Universal Consciousness, Presence or the Self.
But no matter how valiant our efforts may be to pin a label on it, words can only point to it. Silence just is.
This book will help you see through the mind-made limitations that obscure our intrinsic wholeness.

The beauty and wonder of the natural world offer us a window into ourselves, if we know how to look. It is a precious gift, but most of us don’t know how to open it.
We have been trained to think that nature is separate from us. But nothing could be further from the truth. We are entwined with the natural world, like a tree with its roots.
When we come upon the silence of a majestic mountain or listen to joyful birdsong on a spring morning, we are invited into the present moment, where there is no past and no future. In these rare and wonderful moments, the thinking mind stops its constant chatter, and we encounter a dimension of being where there is no time. It is the gateway to a sacred dimension within every human being.
When we are in communion with nature, we are in communion with ourselves. And it is within this mysterious and beautiful relationship that we begin to see ourselves as we really are.
