Silence #3

When there is no silence, then the One Word which God speaks is not truly heard as Love.   Then only ‘words’ are heard. TM, Love

‘Words’ are not love, for they are many and Love is One.  Where there are many words, we lose consciousness of the fact that there is really only One Word.  The One Word which God speaks is Himself.  Speaking, he manifests Himself as infinite Love.  TM, Love

If there is no silence beyond and within the many words of doctrine, there is no religion, only a religious ideology. TM, Love

religion goes beyond words and actions, and attains to the ultimate truth only in silence and Love. TM, Love

Where … silence is lacking, where there are only the ‘many words’ and not the One Word, then there is much bustle and activity but no peace, no deep thought, no understanding, no inner quiet.  TM, Love

In silence we face and admit the gap between the depths of our being, which we consistently ignore, and the surface which is untrue to our own reality. TM, Love

We recognize the need to be at home with ourselves in order that we may go out to meet others, not just with a mask of affability, but with real commitment and authentic love. TM, Love

If we are afraid of being alone, afraid of silence, it is perhaps because of our secret despair of inner reconciliation. TM, Love

If we have no hope of being at peace with ourselves in our own personal loneliness and silence, we will never be able to face ourselves at all: we will keep running and never stop.  TM, Love

silence makes us whole if we let it.  Silence helps draw together the scattered and dissipated energies of a fragmented existence.  TM, Love
