Deeper than Words

Much of how I express connection is through words. Words of affirmation or encouragement. Questions to get to the heart of a person or the heart of the matter. At my best, my words come from a deep place of love. What gets me into trouble is when I get so hung up on communication that I neglect connection that goes deeper than words. 

My relationship to the invisible and ineffable cannot be summarily expressed in words. Even in talking and listening, there is a sense of presence, a connection, an energy that runs deeper than the audible conversation. 

My desire is to remain aware of what lies beneath language, to live from a "be" level and let the words I speak be meaningful windows into what is... 

deeper than words.
