Silence is the mystery of the world to come.
Speech is the organ of this present world…
More than all things love silence:
it brings you a fruit that the tongue cannot describe.
In the beginning we have to force ourselves to be silent.
But then from our very silence
is born something
that draws us into deeper silence.
May God give you an experience of this ‘something’ that is born of silence.
If you practice this
inexpressible light will dawn upon you.
