ever speaking silence…

Quote

Silence is ever-speaking. It is the perennial flow of language which is interrupted by speaking. These words which I am speaking obstruct that mute language.

For example, there is electricity flowing in a wire. With resistance to its passage, it glows as a lamp or revolves as a fan. In the wire it remains as electric energy. Similarly silence is the flow of language, obstructed by words.

~ Sri Ramana Maharshi
