"Our sojourn of inner growth sometimes
Confines us to the cave's empty gloom.
In this silent, gray space of waiting
When we are unsure of how to proceed
We hear your voice of wisdom urging us:
'Do not be afraid. I am with you.'
'Learn to love the silence.'
'Trust this time of slow gestation.'
'This is not a waste of your time.'
'Breathe, Be at peace. Easy does it.'"
