Silence shared in words
The Joy of Silence
One of the things i enjoy most in this life
is hearing you describe the state of enlightenment.
For those of us who love to listen,
can you once again say something about the unsayable?
It is true
that there is nothing
even the talk of it,
even the faraway echo,
even the shadow of it.
The moon reflected in the water
is not the real moon,
but still it has tremendous beauty;
and if the waters of your mind
then the moon reflected
in those waters
is exactly the same.
It is not your experience,
but it is someone's experience you love,
it is someone's experience you trust.
And just because you love and you trust,
you start sharing the experience in a subtle way.
It is certainly difficult to say anything about it,
although my whole life I have been saying things about it
and only about it.
Even if, though, I am talking about other things,
I am only talking
to lead you
towards an understanding of enlightenment.
It is your
state of silence,
it is your
state of universal-hood.
It is you
without the ego
and its problems.
It is you
without any questions
and without any answer either
And there is no joy
which can transcend this silence.
It is pure light,
it is pure delight.
I can understand your question.
Just to hear about it again and again
is a necessary need,
so you don't
why you are here.
