My old friend Lao Tzu says:
Do you have the patience?
Do you have the patience to wait until your mud settles
and the water becomes clear?
Normally, you don’t think about that – when the ocean is all brown and muddy – it’s because there’s a storm. When everything becomes still again, it becomes a beautiful turquoise colour. Everything has settled. And so it is with your mind and your thoughts. Watch them. Stop, and all will become crystal clear.
The master is coming from silence and the disciple is coming from noise.
Become more and more quiet.
Only in silence you will understand.
Only in silence truth is revealed.
Meditation is a silent ecstasy.
