Answer:  Silence

True silence is the rest of the mind; it is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment. ~ William Penn

Even in the stillness, the cosmos swirls. Even when silence reigns, we hear its heartbeat.

Float Your Dreams On The Air January 23, 2011

Life is a journey, not a race
Savor each step, feel love’s embrace
Even in the darkest hours, the light of love still shines
As God reaches out for your hand and mine

So float your dreams on the air
Don’t keep your feet on the ground
And remember when nothing is certain, possibilities abound

Be who you are, who you’re meant to be
Look within, and you will start to see
You hold the key to your passion’s destination
It’s locked in the heart of God’s creation

So float your dreams on the air
Don’t keep your feet on the ground
When nothing is certain, possibilities abound

Let go of your grievances, your hurt and the pain
Make love and forgiveness your constant refrain
Listen to your heart, it’s calling to you
Your Spirit knows what you came here to do

So float your dreams on the air
Don’t keep your feet on the ground
And remember when nothing is certain, possibilities abound

Let your heart be your guide
It’s your door to the wisdom inside
All of the answers lie within
Your Spirit knows where it’s been

So float your dreams on the air
Don’t keep your feet on the ground
When nothing is certain, possibilities abound

When we focus on rites and rituals, we risk losing touch with the essential meaning behind the practice, which is to connect with the Spirit within.
