there is holy silence in the heart when all the urgent words are said & the inner choice stands clear at last. there is nothing more to be done. silence dwells within the heart when i lay my defenses down & bow in humble gratitude to Shiva's conquest of my stubborn self-will. silence reigns within the heart when the internal struggle is over & i set to work with bandages & ointments, applying them as needed to both the innocent & damned, for compassion judges not. from the holy silence of the heart flows now the purity of love.
