In de muziek zijn de stiltes even belangrijk als klanken... (stilte in al haar vormen kan me eindeloos raken )
I learned that we know as people different kinds of silence... but the closer we come to our real selves, we know that there's only one silence... only we as people bring the difference in silence ...now I can find in silence my deepest self, and many power to stay in balance ....
Silence is not a lack of words
Silence is not a lack of music.
Silence is not a lack of curses.
Silence is not a lack of screams.
Silence is not a lack of colors
or voices or bodies or whistling wind.
Silence is not a lack of anything.
Silence is resting, nestling
in every leaf of every tree
in every root and branch.
Silence is the flower sprouting
upon the branch.
Silence is the mother singing
to her newborn babe
Silence is the mother crying
for her stillborn babe
Silence is the life of all
these babes, whose breathis a breath of God
Silence is seeing and singing praises
Silence is the roar of ocean waves
Silence is the sandpiper dancing
on the shoreSilence is the vastness of a whale
Silence is a blade of grass
Silence is sound
And silence is silence
Silence is love, even the love that hides in hate
Silence is the pompous queen
and the harlot and the pimp
hugging his purse on a crowded street.
Silence is the healer dreaming
the plant, the drummer drumming
the dream. It is the lover'sexhausted fall into sleep
It is the call of morning birds
Silence is God's beat tapping all hearts
Silence is the star kissing a flower
lighting the window of home
of Earth, the purifying dream of Water
the purifying rage of Fire, the soaring
and spiraling flight of Air. It is all
things dissolved into no-thing--Silence is with you always.....the Presence
of I AM
