Sometimes we simply have nothing to say. Maybe we try to engage in polite conversation, to fill the ‘awkward’ silence. But what if we can meet in our discomfort; beyond words, beyond concepts, beyond fears, expectations or projections? What if we can meet without anything at all, even the idea of a ‘me’ meeting a ‘you’? In that silent communion, it’s not awkwardness we discover, but tender, heart-opening beauty.
