the work for which all other work is but preparation...

For one human being to love another: that is perhaps the most
difficult task of all,
the work for which all other work is but preparation.
It is a high inducement to the individual to ripen...a great claim upon us, something that chooses us out and calls us to vast things.

~ Rainer Maria Rilke

Hi Diana,
silence and tranquillity pervades your space
everything stems from silence
all creation emerges from stillness
all the preparation takes us into the bounty of stillness
and we become one with the whole

Hi George,
It's quite beautiful, isn't it, how everything comes from this place of silence, this stillness.

Even more beautiful are those moments when we return to the silence.
