"In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in a clearer light, and
what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness."


"Empty yourself of everything. Let the mind rest at peace. 
The ten thousand things rise and fall while the Self watches their return.
They grow and flourish and then return to the source. 
Returning to the source is stillness, which is the way of nature."

Lao Tzu

"Words stand between silence and silence:
between the silence of things and the silence of our own being,
between the silence of the world and the silence of God.
When we have really met and known the world in silence,
words do not separate us from the world nor from other men,
nor from God, nor from ourselves
because we no longer trust entirely in language
to contain reality."

T Merton

A poem 

To Laraine

The Tai Chi lesson is under way

Hope we all live through it – You prey

Creaking joints and aching feet

Really “Fit” people – Better on a seat

You look at us and must want to weep

And have nightmares when you sleep

You have the patience of a Saint!

Because Bruce Lee – we aint!

But our hearts and minds are set

We will get these moves – you bet!

We sit and rest and drink some tea

We've mastered that as you can see

All in this class are now friends

We all make mistakes – then make amends

You lift our spirits and our minds

Instil in us, you see good signs

You make us try harder still

Better than any vitamin pill

Thank you Laraine for the way you teach

Makes Form 24 – within our reach

Best Wishes Dave Murray June 2014
