As we move into this time of the year when we rush, push and struggle to balance work and family. When the sounds of the season become overpowering and brash…take a moment to find and listen to the silence that can bring true spirituality and stillness.
There is one truth, and it is silence.
All truths come from, exist as, and return to silence. Silence is behind every holy thought, word and act. All holiness is silent.
This is what all the Sages and Saints know and say: Enter silence and we leave behind the rubble of self and no-self, of time and of death. It’s difficult to do: throw it away, fling it off, kick it out. Just don’t let it stay.
Now give more…let go of ego, will and humility, ignorance and knowledge, the body and its faculties. Surrender what is and is not yourself. Nothing can remain. When absolutely all has been given, even then, take another step back.
In silence, we transform and are reborn.
We become real with more joy, pleasure, peace and contentment that we ever hoped for. Our highest purpose is fulfilled, our greatest longing is realized in ways we know not how. In silence, we are moved by what moves all else, without knowing how, why or when. This is true freedom, true love and ultimate truth.
Be. Be truth. Be silence. Be love.
