  • 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

  • more beautiful,

  • more blissful

  • than enlightenment

  • 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

  • are silent,

  • 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

  • simply silent.

  • 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

  • forget

  • why you are here.
