“Try seeing ‘quiet’ as not being the absence of noise, but as the backdrop to the noise.”
Spot on, Jonas! The quiet is where the activity is, where the actual activity is meant to happen. Like a supernova, first going into itself, then blasting out before contracting into the small heavy mass it eventually becomes — the black hole.
The soul’s journey is like that too — looking inward, then expanding outward to release the ‘goo and muck’ before contracting inwards towards inner peace. As it was meant to be all this time:)
