It comes to me from deep within the center. There is silence. There is truth. There is the sound of the floorboards settling. There is the sound of my breath in the cold night air. There is piano. There is running. There I am. There is the relationship with myself. I have learned the value of knowing the center. From that place, I do not ask permission. I do not need approval. I do what it is I do best. This is the quiet resonance. From this place, there is balance. From this place, work begins. Only from this place do you experience true intimacy. Only from this place do you love yourself.
