This page is comprised of quotations from various sources. The references have been lost in the mist of time. The quotations themselves remain, Silence being, perhaps, the quintessence of the mountain stream.
Silence, according to the common usage definition, is an auditory quality – an absence of auditory phenomena. This definition is inadequate to our meaning.
‘Silence‘ is not an auditory silence or even a quietness of the mind. Inexpressible, it is a dynamic of profound and inexpressible stillness through which the incomprehensible flows, is encountered and known.
The state of Silence thrives as the experience of grace, 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 utterly perfect supreme reality whose form is Silence can only be kissed with Silence.
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 the heart, in the form of the pure expanse, the natural state that exists as the treasure trove of grace.
Except through Silence there is no other means to know faultlessly the whole and primal entity, That Which Is.
When Silence occurs, it is the Lord who abides, embracing us in union with Him.
Be still, and know …
God is love, His form is Silence.
He is the ancient one; he is the immediate one; he exists as the supreme serenity; he is the tranquillity immanent; the pure expanse of whose essence is he himself.
Unless one’s truth shines as pure being it is foolishness to claim that the blessing of grace has been attained. It is childishness to call ‘a blessing of grace’ the good fortune of feeling elated over attaining what one desires. Authentic grace is only the Silence that shines exclusively as That Which is.
