The soul lives there

in the silent breath. – Rumi  

In silence and quiet we discover parts of ourselves

that are far deeper than language can ever express.

We stop needing the reassurance of others who mirror us,

we stop being distracted and seduced by the emotionality of words.  

When we still lips and mind we find succour

in the gentle lessons that come to consciousness.

We revel in the beautiful sound of birds and life teeming around us. 

Silence is the language of Source, which is

comforting for those brave enough to listen. 

(The Gift, Ruth Ostrow)
