Silence, My Fullness

Dancing Inside Me

LOTUS OF THE HEART

Everyone is Welcome Here

Living in LOVE beyond Beliefs

Silent Prayer

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.

*Rumi

Love has a language, words never speak. Even to say "Love," while an expression of Love, is a move away from Love. This is why reverential Silence is the most pure, subtle form of worship. Worship, ideally, moves not into Silence, but from Silence. And any adoration, thereby, religious or not, is worship. In Silence, all is unified, for Silence, prior to all, is prior to disunity and the Ground of differentiation. However, in creation, differentiation becomes separation. In Silence, we find ourselves One again, in One.

*Arem Nahariim-Samadhi

Silence, my Fullness,
You once to me absence

(Some lovers, so Silence,
are much more beautiful
than they first appear)

While with words
I long did play

Now, Silence, enough,
a Presence

Few words
What really to say?

(Anyway, I prefer
to stay hidden, walking around quietly
in the open among all - even my laughter
has become Your praise, but they don't know)

My Love, this wordless prayer,
"I wait, come play with me
among the trees of Eden, once again

"I even Your Garden glad to be,
come, My Love, come, dance with Joy
inside me"

(Those who must talk
will never understand this...
they may visit Eden -
Eden, we Her worshipers, have become)

Silence, are You God
or an attribute of God?
or both?

I once prayed,
She said, "Arem, hush!
Just feel this Love moving between us"

(They didn't teach this
in theology school -
Silence is the death of theology -
sweet death! sweet death!)

Now, who would not like to have
a Lover like This?
