Sometimes, there are a lot of words.
They might be beautiful, flowing, eloquent, evocative words. Expressions of love, freedom and happiness.
Or they might be words that stir the ego. Words telling you how to behave, how to think. Words suggesting one person knows better than another. Words claiming everyone is doing the best they can (apart from maybe THAT person).
Sooner or later, in the midst of the noise, we find what is common to all words: the silence from which words arise, and the silence to which they return.
Words are important. We’ll continue to use the best words possible. But today, I’m hearing the silence beyond the words.
