Surrender to Silence

“There will be moments when the stillness will become so powerful that it will make all exercise and all effort on your part impossible. In such moments it is no longer you who go in quest of stillness; it is the stillness that takes possession of you and overwhelms you. When this happens you may safely, and profitably, let go of all effort (which has become impossible, anyway) and surrender to the overpowering Silence. “

– Anthony de Mello, ‘Sadhana’
