Absolute Stillness

Meister Eckhart 
“St. Augustine says: The best thing to be said about God is silence.’ Scripture says: 'Be still, and know that I am God' (Psalm 46:10). 
Absolute stillness for as long as possible is best of all for you.”

Sermons, Vol I
M. O'C. Walshe translation

  1. "Absolute stillness" is a useful phrase and a beautiful one. I love all these quotations valuing silence. Peter

  2. I've gotten quite a few comments like that. Thank you. I love them too! I hope you all notice this week's banner head on the Day Book site. It is a good image for silence and solitude.
