IN THE QUIET

IMG_6119I have been wandering silent in the desert.  I could not find nor utter any words.  It is as if I am empty of everything.  It is not a bad thing.  It is just what it is – a time for the quiet.

In the quiet, I am learning to be still within myself.  I’m finding that it is safe to stay here in this moment, in this space.  No need to rush off.  There is no emergencies, no one to rescue – except myself.  I can be here for me.

My time in the desert is coming to an end.  It is time well spent, getting acquainted with myself, feeling my body, its sensations, its discomforts and staying the whole while.  I have learned to weather all the changes and storms like the majestic mountains.  I am standing tall and rooted to the ground – steady and strong.  I am understanding of being grounded. I am here today and not gone tomorrow.

I love the desert with its silence and barren beauty.  I will come back again and again.  It nourishes me and makes me feel whole.

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.

    Nature can really do wonders to the soul like no other place can. Like this barren land.
