Day 4 of Rumi Wisdom

“Silence is the language of God, all else is a poor translation.”

This just tickles me! In today’s culture, it seems like we are inundated with a lot of noise; and most of it is people chattering on. In order to get silence, we must go away somewhere – a silent retreat perhaps. Why not just be still?

We all want so much from God; yet we are too busy talking, so we can’t even hear the voice of God. God speaks in the silence; in the stillness of the hour.

Remember; speak only if it improves the silence!
