Everyone around me has beentelling me to learn how tolet things go. That I will onlybecome more bitter, and morehostile the longer that Ihold onto something that hasshaped me into the personthat I am today. But I wantto see you try to let somethinggo that made you feel inadequate,and made you feel as ifyou meant nothing to no one.I want to see you let goof something that made youunderstand that you really aren’tany different from anyone else.

Everyone around me has been
telling me to learn how to
let things go. That I will only
become more bitter, and more
hostile the longer that I
hold onto something that has
shaped me into the person
that I am today. But I want
to see you try to let something
go that made you feel inadequate,
and made you feel as if
you meant nothing to no one.
I want to see you let go
of something that made you
understand that you really aren’t
any different from anyone else.

Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.
The most fundamental aggression to ourselves, the most fundamental harm we can do to ourselves, is to remain ignorant by not having the courage and the respect to look at ourselves honestly and gently.

On one of the loudest holiday weekends of the year, a show about the importance of silence. Being a boy from the Dakota prairie, this week’s show with acoustic ecologist Gordon Hempton just tugs at my heart strings.

~Trent Gilliss, senior editor

There are answers in the silence. I feel the presence of everything, nothing shouts importance. Quiet is quieting.
— ~Gordon Hempton, reflecting on the hike to One Square Inch in the Hoh Valley Rain Forest (via beingblog)
