‘n dagboek inskrywing 15 June 2006

vandag is ‘n eenkant~dag
woorde boelie mekaar op my tong

om stilte op te soek is vir my ‘n lafenis.  ‘n recharge.

Solitude and Silence…

It is in deep solitude that I find the gentleness with which I can truly love my brothers. The more solitary I am the more affection I have for them… Solitude and silence teach me to love my brothers for what they are, not for what they say.
Thomas Merton

First, silence makes us pilgrims. Secondly, silence guards the fire within. Thirdly, silence teaches us to speak.
Henri J. M. Nouwen

Om Tussen Mense Te Wees…

The measure of your solitude is the measure of your capacity for communion.
Henry J. M. Nouwen

On Sharing in Groups…

Often we come home from a sharing session with a feeling that something precious has been taken away from us or that holy ground has been trodden upon.
Henry J. M. Nouwen

On Hearing His Voice…

In that silence, He will listen to us; there He will speak to our soul, and there we will hear His voice.
Mother Theresa
