Terry Tempest Williams

Beloved Terry,

Your interview with Krista Tippett impressed me deeply. You have done well in living your life.

In response to the meaning contained in your mothers ‘empty’ journals, this came through my heart for you.

Those who know
Realize words
cannot contain
it’s wisdom.

In the East
the True Sage
takes sanctity
in Silence.

Your mom was surely a True Sage.

And I feel she recognized in you the potential to be able to understand the truth they contain and give them voice. Perhaps if you hold a journal open on your lap when in meditation something of significance will reveal itself.

Last night I listened to a discourse on this subject. You may also find it significant.

I hope someday we can meet.

Love, Devananda
