As a new academic year is about to begin, the following quote was read at the Rise of Meeting on September 1, 2019.
“How is the Inward Teacher known? In joy and health, but also in loneliness and alienation; in the deepest encounters with other people and in dialogue with great ideas and works; in love but also in emptiness; in hunger but also in plenitude; in solitude but also in community. Wherever we are is the starting place for encountering the voice which can speak to our condition. We cannot compel the inner voice to speak, we can only try to practice openness and attention, and when we hear the voice we can only practice minding and answering.” —Paul A. Lacey, 1988
RFM holds all students and educators in the Light and best wishes for an exciting, thought-provoking new year.
