Rumi and Meister Eckhart

 Keep silence, that you may hear Him speaking

Words unutterable by tongue in speech
Keep silence, that you may hear from that Sun
Things inexpressible in books and discourses.
Keep silence, that the Spirit may speak to you
~ Rumi (‘Masnavi i Ma’navi’)


In this silence, this quiet, the Word is heard.
There is no better method of approaching
this Word than in silence, in quiet:
we hear it and know it aright in unknowing.
To one who knows naught it is clearly revealed
~ Meister Eckhart
