Silence

Silence is the language God speaks and everything else is a bad translation.

I like this quote.

I discovered it in Ian Cron’s book  Jesus, My Father and the CIA.  He attributed to Mother Teresa. When I tried to confirm the source this morning (after I had already published this, attributing it to Mother Teresa), I found it attributed to Thomas Keating, John B. O’Reilly, Eckhardt Tolle and Rumi as well.  Fr. Keating looks to be the most likely source, but I’m not sure.

Anybody out there know?

In any event, it seems to me to be a thought worthy of some reflection.
