Happy new year to all!
I would like to ask all about your experience of silence in OST - please describe your experience of silence while facilitating or as a participant in an open space event. I will put together all responses and share it again with the rest of the OSList subscribers...
I would also like to share with you a poem I wrote yesterday on the Many Faces of Silence...(see below). You may also read this on my poetry blogspot: Carmela's Poems and Prayers: THE MANY FACES OF SILENCE<http://carmela-poems-and-prayers.blogspot.com/2014/12/the-many-faces-of-silence.html>

THE MANY FACES OF SILENCE
by: Carmela Ariza
31 December 2015, Panglao, Bohol, 10:22AM
I seek the woods
And the woods find me
I listen to the log
In the offing
Bring me to a standstill
Rushing through my viens
In a constant refrain
In work or laughter
This is a sentence
I walk away
Lost in deep thought
Nervous but ecstatic
Consumed with desire
Frolicking in the rapids
Restless, definitely not loveless
Nine months in waiting
Being true to oneself
Release and deliverance
Healing, in the fullness of time
In deep sorrow or deep pain
A child's embrace gives comfort
A coming home to the core
In harmony with nature
Forbearance in difficult times
Appreciation for what gives rise to my existence
Reaching out to help the needy
Accepting the present
Here and now
I wish everyone OPEN SPACES FOR SILENCE THE WHOLE YEAR!
BLESSINGS to all!
True happiness is a state of mind.
Happiness is not a consequence of things that happen.
Do not pursue happiness - practice it.
Sing, even if you do not sound good.
Smile, even when things go wrong.
Create happiness, and happy you will be.
