A Meditation on Silence

Featured

Underneath the perpetual busyness of modern life lies a stillness

Vast islands of emptiness stretch far beyond the known horizons


It appears like clouds parting to make room for the crisp blue sky, or

Rocks peacefully settling to the bottom of the riverbed


Time will clear the path for silence

As we patiently wait for it to emerge


Therein lies an invitation eternally present in all of us


Can we make room for this silence?

Can we allow it to cleanse our frantic minds?


Through non-action, what needs to be revealed will make itself present

Sit with what comes to be, and embrace it


Only in silence can one know thyself

Only in silence, can one be free


For silence contains everything, yet nothing

Everything yet nothing
