Eve of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception

We have this feast to help us turn to Mary during Advent. She was conceived without sin and yet human with a human heart and all the emotions we experience. However, when I think of Mary, I see her as loving, very maternal, serene, and radiating a certain peace and stillness.

I am now getting the Friends of Silence newsletter and it is full of wonderful quotes on silence and also on joy. Here is a sample to reflect upon today:

The waves of mind
demand so much of Silence.
But She does not talk back
does not give answers nor arguments.
She is the hidden author of every thought
every feeling
every moment.
She speaks only one word.
And that word is this very existence.

~ from MY SECRET IS SILENCE: Poetry and Sayings of Adyashanti
