This Silence

This silence, this moment, every moment, 
if it's genuinely inside you, brings what you need.

There's nothing to believe. 
Only when I stopped believing in myself did I come into this beauty.
Sit quietly, and listen for a voice that will say, 'Be more silent.'

Die and be quiet.
Quietness is the surest sign that you've died.

Your old life was a frantic running from silence.
Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking.

Live in silence.
~ Rumi ~

When I am on the beach, the connection to silence is so easy. This silence is not quiet but rather it is filled with all of creation and I am, too. No more frantic running, no tangle of fear-thinking ~ just living in silence.
