The one journey that ultimately matters is the journey into the place of stillness deep within one’s self. To reach that place is to be at home; to fail to reach it is to be forever restless.
At the place of ‘central silence’ one’s own life and spirit are united with the life and Spirit of God.
There the fire of God’s presence is experienced. The soul is immersed in Love. The divine birth happens. We hear at last the living Word.
