From all the words that come from our houses of peace a movement can come like sparks of the Divine that spiral off in to what can not be fully described because its ' unfolding is to deep, and profound in us . It is to vast to be fully understood by the human intellect .
It is like that our whole journey back in to the God that we came from . It is like that the silence we journey deeper in to . Something you fear that takes us further from you , but in reality brings us ever deeper together on a purer ,and deeper level .
All we can really do is love and support each other , and give each other the sacred space to make this journey . Our being together has a purpose , but we are wise enough to know it has its limitations , and that is why we respect each others long hours of silence ,and solitude .
The silence and solitude also has its purpose . But it is not the God that we journey in to either .It is like God , but equally it is not God . The silence we experience is not the fullness of silence .It is but an immediate and direct experience in so far as our human capacity can experience it .A spark of the Divine that points to the immense reality that unfolds within us hidden from your view to embrace every part of our living and being .
This reality is actually within each one of us for there is something of God in every human being .But not many are prepared to make the journey because of the commitment involved , the order and discipline involved , and the sacrifices to be made . And we fully acknowledge there are , and will be profound sacrifices to be made along the way .
To truly receive the God who comes to us , journeys with us , is within us , and awaits us also we simply only have to open the doors of our hearts in this present moment . We have to simply go beyond our own self constructed worlds that places " me " at the centre . We learn to receive the " One" who is " I am " without trying to grasp on to any moment or movement . For the gift and offering is in love that was before the beginning , and will eternally continue to unfold with us one with it if we are prepared to go that far in to God .
The silence helps us to receive this treasure in the earth vessel that we are , and transcends there here and now in to that which is eternal . God is in Himself in love , and in love we are in God , and one with Himself . This is our message of hope to the Church , and world in these troubled times . It is the fullness of what it means when we invite you to go back to beginning , and root of all things , even in the Church .
It is why we can hope even in the darkest night of the soul because ultimately all is well . All is well beyond all sin , suffering, sickness , and death . All is well in our eternity in and with God.
