Silence welling up from the core of our being may be understood, through experience, as the embrace of God.

Silence is not an auditory silence or even a quietness of the mind, it is a state of profound and inexpressible stillness in which God is known and experienced to be one’s true and abiding state.

The state of Silence thrives as the experience of the grace firmament, that expanse of supreme bliss which is the perfect primal entity. Consequently, all other states come to merge in it like many different rivers entering the ocean of Silence.

The Silence that shines in the heart, destroying utterly the objective awareness of the fragmented mind, is totally and perfectly ripe wisdom. For the individual, freedom is coalescing with its unsurpassed ground of being.

The beloved shines as the embodiment of Silence, the infinite expanse of grace. Causing us to see Him as the true self, He demonstrates clearly in our heart the natural state that exists as the treasure trove of grace.

The utterly perfect supreme reality whose nature is Silence can only be kissed with Silence.

When Silence occurs, he is the Lord who abides embracing me in a union with Him.

He is the ancient one; He is the immediate one; He exists as the supreme serenity; He is the tranquility immanent; the pure expanse whose essence is He himself, who is my ‘I’.
