“The Gift of Silence”
Silence is the gate…
We are missing the aesthetic beauty of Silence, the fragrance
of quietude and inner peace, because the mind has become
overgrown and overactive. It has captured us and
the whole energy of life, going on and on ceaselessly,
continuing with its mechanical momentum in time.
In the present competitive commercial society there seems
to be no room for Silence.
Quietude and Silence are not the negation of life, but the
regeneration of it. Silence is the means to elevate life energy
to a timeless dimension.
We have got to find this unknown dimension of life. The
whole world is in desperate need of a new-dimensional
consciousness, so that human beings can live intelligently,
creatively, spontaneously and lovingly, and not just follow
the ego pursuits mechanically.
When one begins to realize the limitation of all thought
activity and ego drives the attachment [to them] drops.
One is left with a deep, profound Silence.
Silence becomes eloquent and active. Silence becomes
intelligent and positive. Action that springs from the depth
of Silence is spontaneous, truthful and universal. It is
immaculate, timeless and spiritual.
Silence is the means and Silence is the end.
Creative Silence is the ultimate challenge.
Silence is the sap that rejuvenates life.
Silence is the source of eternal life.
