I have a severe mental illness
But thankfully I'm in recovery now
Still it's one day at a time ( until I get better )
I love the silence of the night
When there is no one about
Just me and the sounds of my soul stirring ....
I love the silence when it takes me over Completely
It grips me and all I can hear
Is the whirling in my ears ( are these the whispers of angels ? )
Apart from the love of our fellow person
God is best found in the silence
For He is perfect silence and fullness ( the pleroma )
the first sound
before sounds ( om )
The mind loves to create internal and external images of God ( and then play with these )
But god is beyond image and comprehension ( though we are created in his image )
And though God is far away he is yet always close ( his absence marks his presence )
Therefore Our job is to let all pictures of God evaporate and instead let the silence of the heart produce an image we can't see. But yet can feel ( the mind is in the heart ) and share this with others ....
So brothers and sisters our duty is to love in the day and be silent at night
And in this way God will build a house in our hearts forever . Amen

"love your enemy"
So I loved myself.
