Deep silence

Meditation-Quotes-silence-300x298

“Broken promises torment the imagination
through a shattered dream,
splintered like broken glass
into countless reflections of angst.

distorting the sense of wholeness
clinging to burdened thoughts,
clinging to faults,
clinging to blame,
to bitter acrimony from yesterday into today,
unhelpful, unwanted and undeserved.

exposing collapsed centres of inner movement
unexamined defences to this impersonal harassment
until the willingness comes to let things be
and beginner’s mind taken to heart.

in our shattered dream,
we see the way to a new beginning

Jesus, Knowing Him

knowing

Its a very delicate affair to understand Jesus; intense training is needed for this. It is just like understanding classical music. When you listen to classical music for the first time it may sound boring. It is so delicate, a long training is needed. You have to be an apprentice for many many years; only then your eyes are trained to catch the subtle. And then there is nothing like classical music; then ordinary day-to-day music, is not music at all, it is just noise. For enjoying classical music you need trained ears; without the training we hear noise and think it is music. Training is needed, and the more you are trained, the more the subtle becomes visible. But classiccal music is nothing before Jesus, because He is the cosmic music. You have to be so silent that there is no single flicker of thought, not a single movement in your being; only then can you hear Jesus, can you understannd Jesus, can you know him.
