Divine silence

Tell me how deeply your heart has broken, how your twin childhood terrors of abandonment and intimacy have melted into rivers of heartbreaking grief and grace and love beyond understanding; how all your concepts of what it means to be ‘spiritual’ or ‘awakened’ have crumbled to ashes, leaving only this mysterious life in all its raw, undivided, unfiltered, naked brilliance.

Tell me who you are, friend, but do not give me any mental conclusions or concepts removed from your lived experience.

No teachers, no books, no tall tales of your awakening or spiritual transformation will help you here, on the threshold of this great Mystery.

Stay silent if you must.
