Silent Language


Silence is the language of God. All else is poor translation. In order to hear that language, we must learn to be still and to rest in God.

How true those words. In each of our Sufi centers, there is a framed saying.

Silence, for breath is a Godsend.


Peace and Blessings!

Maybe enforced silence is not silence. There should be silence inspite of the mental chatter.
