I am journeying through life practicing a Christian spirituality. I am also an Oblate of the World Community for Christian Meditation.

Risking Words

The spiritual and human life finds its home in silence. This silence is the silence of being and nothing else. This nothing of being has been called God, the Divine Life, Trinity, True Love.

Any words about this being are a risk. Words can be like wallpaper, covering up and concealing the wall behind. Words cover a nothing that is everything: the silence we all come from and share.

Any words risked in this way must first soak in the silence they cover. Only then are the words truly useful because they share in what they hide.

Hopefully this site is a sharing in this soaking; a site in some way serving the silence of being.
