The presentations at this site cover a long time period. Each one represents part of an on-going Pilgrimage, and the writer's ideas, practices, and experience have changed over time. This change is the quality of any living Journey. Please read with this in mind, allowing the inner Teacher to speak to you as you need at this particular time in your own living Journey. Thanks!

Silence is God's first language; everything else is a poor translation. In order to hear that language, we must learn to be still and to rest in God.

Mary, Mother of Jesus, said
to the angel Gabriel
"Let it be done to me, according to your Word"

This consent
to the silent, mysterious working of Grace

Is the Prayer
arising while resting quietly, wakefully
in the Silence

The Silence
is this Prayer
of consent to Grace

Silence
is glad surrender in inarticulate confession
"Do Your Will within and through me
I cannot do It with or through myself"
