The only way you will ever awaken is through the silence, not through analyzation of facts. Not by sorting out good and bad, but through simple silence, letting go. Letting go of all thoughts, all the hurts, all the dogmas and concepts. Letting go of these things daily.
— Robert Adams (via zenperegrino)
It is very hard to live with silence. The real silence is death and this is terrible. To approach this silence, it is necessary to journey to the desert. You do not go to the desert to find identity, but to loses it, to lose your personality, to be anonymous. You make yourself void. You become silence. You become more silent than the silence around you. And then something extraordinary happens: you hear silence speak.
— Edmond Jabes (via ains0phaur)
Sometimes we enter art to hide within it. It is where we can go to save ourselves, where a third-person voice protects us.

»man’s skull (…) is equal to the universe, for in it is contained all that sees in it. likewise the sun and whole starry sky of comets and the sun pass in it and shine and move as in nature.
is not the whole universe that strange skull in which meteors, suns, comets and planets rush endlessly?
