The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

You mustn’t listen to the words, listen to the silence

“Every word, every image used for God
is a distortion more than a description.”
“Then how does one speak of God?”

“Through Silence.”
“Why, then, do you speak in words?”At that the Master laughed uproariously. He said,

“When I speak, you mustn’t listen to the words, my dear.
Listen to the Silence.”

~ Anthony de Mello ~
