If we talk to people, then we mostly perceive separateness. We are then in the realm of opinions and if we are lucky, then one is ours. If not, then one explains, convinces, persuades or is angry. Sometimes one only raises the exhausted look to the sky and stretches the arms up or lets the hands fall full of perplexity on the thighs. Does no one want to understand!? Some talk and talk, seeking unity. But basically they only harm themselves and without noticing it they despair of the separation. Thereupon they talk further and further and all the more.
Where there is no talking and where nothing is discussed, there is true unity and there is true peace. But it is infinitely difficult for people to give silence a chance. If they did, they would be surprised how good it is to be silent together. What a blessing it is and what clear and secure coolness one may then receive.
