THE IMPERSONAL LIFE
BEING IN/OF/AS ALL
WITHOUT WORDS OR THOUGHTS
PRISTINE SIMPLICITY POSSESSES
Silence illuminates our souls,
whispers to our hearts,
and brings them together.
Silence separates us from ourselves,
makes us sail the firmament of spirit,
and brings us closer to heaven.
~ Kahlil Gibran
If the soul attend for a moment to its own infinity,
then and there is silence.
She is audible to all men, at all times, in all places, and if we will
we may always hearken to her admonitions.
~ Henry David Thoreau
Seeming is but a garment I wear --
a care-woven garment that protects me from thy questionings
and thee from my negligence.
The “I” in me, my friend,
dwells in the house of silence,
and therein it shall remain for ever more,
~ Kahlil Gibran
The small truth has words which are clear;
the great truth has great silence.”
~ Rabindranath Tagore
Can be a pilgrimage in itself.
Can help you listen
To the Soul play
In marvelous lute and drum.
A crazed defense of a crumbling fort?
To surrender in Silence,
In celebration of Love’s Victory!
~ Hafiz ‘I Heard God Laughing’
[translation: Daniel Ladinsky]
If you face God in prayer and silence, God will speak to you.
Then you will know that you are nothing.
It is only when you realize your nothingness, your emptiness,
that God can fill you with Himself.
Souls of prayer are souls of great silence.”
~ Mother Teresa
Live in silence.”..
“Let silence take you to the core of life.
all else is poor translation.

From this human condition...
we are drawn into a deep unknowing
in the purity of God....
into the mystical existence of the divine.....
and we enter into Oneness
