"In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in a clearer light, and
what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness."

Ghandi


"Empty yourself of everything. Let the mind rest at peace. 
The ten thousand things rise and fall while the Self watches their return.
They grow and flourish and then return to the source. 
Returning to the source is stillness, which is the way of nature."

Lao Tzu


"Words stand between silence and silence:
between the silence of things and the silence of our own being,
between the silence of the world and the silence of God.
When we have really met and known the world in silence,
words do not separate us from the world nor from other men,
nor from God, nor from ourselves
because we no longer trust entirely in language
to contain reality."

T Merton



A poem 

To Laraine



The Tai Chi lesson is under way


Hope we all live through it – You prey


Creaking joints and aching feet


Really “Fit” people – Better on a seat


You look at us and must want to weep


And have nightmares when you sleep


You have the patience of a Saint!


Because Bruce Lee – we aint!


But our hearts and minds are set


We will get these moves – you bet!


We sit and rest and drink some tea


We've mastered that as you can see


All in this class are now friends


We all make mistakes – then make amends


You lift our spirits and our minds


Instil in us, you see good signs


You make us try harder still


Better than any vitamin pill


Thank you Laraine for the way you teach


Makes Form 24 – within our reach




Best Wishes Dave Murray June 2014
