Words and Silence

                                                                 Radiant Light by Daren Baker 

Words stand between silence and silence: between the silence of things and the silence of our own being, between the silence of the world and the silence of God. 

When we have really met and known the world in silence, 
words do not separate us from the world nor from others,
nor from God, nor from ourselves because we no longer trust entirely in language to contain reality.”

Thomas Merton
