Silence

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

“Silence is difficult and arduous, it is not to be played with. It isn’t something that you can experience by reading a book, or by listening to a talk, or by sitting together, or by retiring into a wood or a monastery. I am afraid none of these things will bring about this silence. This silence demands intense psychological work. You have to be burningly aware of your snobbishness, aware of your fears, your anxieties, your sense of guilt. And when you die to all that, then out of that dying comes the beauty of silence.”

~ Jiddu Krishnamurti

    Greetings of peace, dear Irving and dear blog readers.
    Holy God, help us to be keenly aware of our snobbishness, aware of our fears, our anxieties, and our sense of guilt when this needs highlighting. And help us to die to all that holds up our spiritual maturing, for out of the dying to self will comes the beauty of silence in which we can listen to You more attentively and look forward to trusting and obeying You both now and in 2014!

    Blessings,

    James
