Truth can only be found in silence.
That is the price to pay for truth. To become silent.
In that silence, truth will come by itself. The reality is already there. Your true essence is already there, but it is covered by your identification with the mind. By your personality. By your ideas, your concepts – what you have heard, what you have read.
Only when there is silence – total stillness – then it comes forth by itself. That deep understanding that is already there.
That is the art of the Master. To slowly, slowly get you closer and closer to yourself.
