Voice of silence, the

Is the voice of god or of our higher nature

April 29th 2016
What we call silence in the spiritual life is not a mute world. The sages of the East speak of ‘the voice of silence’, and this is the voice they strive to hear. For those who know how to listen, true silence has a voice, for it is the expression of life, the richness of divine life. The voice of silence is the voice of God, and we can only hear it in ourselves when we succeed in calming all our inner agitations: our rebellions, fears and envies… This voice of God is one with the voice of our higher nature, which can only speak when all our passions have been silenced.
