Chapter 8: The Silence That Follows the Storm
You can carry my words - then you are carrying a dead weight. You will be burdened by it, you will not be freed. My words cannot free you. They may even imprison you, they may become fetters for you. If they only become part of your memory, it would have been better if you had not come. Whatsoever I am saying is not to be remembered, it is to be experienced. And if you experience it, then it becomes your own. Then those words don’t belong to me anymore. Now, that experience has become your own. Now, you know something through your own eyes; now, you feel something through your own heart. This is knowledge, and this gives certainty and this gives faith.
Peace be with you - because only in peace does the divine become possible.
Now get ready for our meditation.
