Coming Home 4 - Enter The Timeless

Written by Master Charles Cannon, Will Wilkinson

Woman on Mountain Top

“The song of the waters is audible to every ear, but there is other music in these hills, by no means audible to all. To hear even a few notes of it you must first live here for a long time, and you must know the speech of hills and rivers. Then on a still night, when the campfire is low and the Pleiades have climbed over rim rocks, sit quietly and listen for a wolf to howl, and think hard of everything you have seen and tried to understand. Then you may hear it – a vast pulsing harmony – its score inscribed on a thousand hills, its notes the lives and deaths of plants and animals, its rhythms spanning the seconds and the centuries.” 1

Written by Master Charles Cannon, Will Wilkinson

Woman Laying In Field Eyes Closed

“To what does the soul turn that has no therapists to visit? It takes its troubles to the trees, to the riverbank, to an animal companion, on an aimless walk through the city streets, a long watch of the night sky. Just stare out the window or boil water for a cup of tea. We breathe, expand, and let go, and something comes in from somewhere.” 1
