ZEN





silence




It is the silence that heals and nourishes us.

Veins against the grain



Shadows
 weave their
 way as
dark veins
 against
 the grain –
golden
 sunlight
 growing
 between
 the cracks.

Silence


If what you are about to say is not more beautiful than silence… then don’t speak


Great truths are taught through silence


Silence can be a real test if you don’t know how to observe it.


Silence allows us to maintain within us, a vital influx that useless words waste away


The effort you used to repress each useless word, strengthens you


Be still…
