Thomas Merton: In God’s Silence …

“But in moments of silence, of meditation, of enlightenment and peace, one learns to live in the atmosphere of solitude even in the midst of crowds. …One opens the inner door of [one’s] heart to the infinite silences of the Spirit, out of whose abysses loves wells up without fail and gives itself to all. In [God’s] silence, the meaning of every sound is finally clear.”–Thomas Merton
