"Then suddenly he was silent, very powerfully silent, filling the room with his unspoken teaching that went far beyond words, banishing my turning thoughts with his simple presence. In that moment I knew without any question that I AM; and that that is enough; no “who” needed. I just am.
It is a lesson I keep having to relearn, re-experience, for the “doing” and the “thinking” take me over again and again as soon as I forget.”
