The Wise Silence


Within us is the soul of the whole, the wise silence, the universal beauty, the eternal One.

Listening to the quiet – Sunday’s Door

Door of the day… (Tintern Abby in South Wales)

No doors to close or ceilings to contain – room for the wind and spirit to move, drawing seekers near. On faith we enter this sacred space.

Through it may we find renewal and inspiration.

“I can hear the hush.” – reflection on my Facebook page  as I shared this morning’s ‘door’. Recently I have noticed more postings with quotes about silence. Silence and its ability to calm and heal the unsettled heart. 

We are living in a time when unsettled hearts are too common. Seek the places/moments where a hush can be heard. May the brief quiet bring calm. 

Without words


God, take my soul to that place, where I may speak without words.
~ Rumi

The door

Now be silent.
Let the One who creates
the words speak.
He made the door.
He made the lock.
He also made the key.

God’s first language 

 
Silence is God’s first language; everything else is a poor translation.
Rumi


Sabbath silence


The trees, the flowers, the plants grow in silence. The stars, the sun, the moon move in silence. Silence gives us a new perspective.
