"In the most simple and profound ways rebirth comes through silence, stillness, and receptivity. Earth is a powerful teacher for this. The magnificent presences of animals, trees, ocean, rivers, mountains, and deserts do not communicate in words. In our world of continuous-feed communication, residing in stillness and connection with Earth is an act of transmutation. Through stillness and connection, we awaken. "
~ Elizabeth Frediani, Where Body Meets Soul: Subtle Energy Healing Practices for Physical and Spiritual Self-Care
"This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once;
a shower is forever falling; vapor ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal sunset, eternal dawn
and gloaming, on seas and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round Earth rolls."
~ John Muir , 1938
