July 16: Silence

Silence is silver. (Shimmering, luminous, pregnant with possibilities.)

Silence is home to becoming.

There the unspeakable Mystery patiently and eternally waits for you . . . ready to reflect back the perfection of your true self, hiding in plain view.

According to Indian activist Mahatma Gandhi: In an attitude of silence the soul finds the path in a clear light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness.

British theologian James Martineau wrote: Silence is in truth the attribute of God, and those who seek Him from that side invariably learn that meditation is not the dream but the reality of life; not the illusion but its truth; not its weakness but its strength.

Silence beckons you to “Come know.”

Will you accept this sacred invitation?
