ever speaking silence…


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

  1. In silence we give the victims families and friends a space for their grief and pain. Our hearts open wide with compassion and caring. May the victims in the shoot down of Malaysian flight 17 be warmed by the arms of angels. For those who have died in the conflict between Palestine and Israel may God enfold them in his love. May comfort be provided to theit families and friends. Hugs, Barbara
