Walk with your Eyes to the Sky

Most children walk with their eyes to the ground.


They are focused on the small devices that they hold in their hands. Those electronic gizmos that have pulled them away from the parks, games of tag, community events and into their homes where they are held prisoners by technology.

Do they notice the sun burst across the horizon? Do they notice the array of colors in autumn or see the flock of Geese as they fly in a perfect V across the sky?

We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass - grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls. Mother Teresa
