Silence

“Silence is the only Voice of our God.”

Mercy

“There comes a time when your eyes are opened. And we come to realize that mercy is infinite. We need only await it with confidence and receive it with gratitude. Mercy imposes no conditions. And lo! Everything we have chosen has been granted to us. And everything we rejected has also been granted.

“Yes, we even get back what we rejected. For mercy and truth are met together. And righteousness and bliss shall kiss one another.”
~ Babette’s Feast

Prayer

“Let me seek, then,
the gift of silence, and poverty, and solitude,
where everything I touch is turned into prayer:
where the sky is my prayer,
the birds are my prayer,
the wind in the trees is my prayer,
for God is all in all.”
~ Thomas Merton

Letting go

“If you let go a little, you will have a little peace. If you let go a lot, you will have a lot of peace. If you let go completely, you will know complete peace and freedom. Your struggles with the world will have come to an end.”
~ Ajahn Chah
