A description of the experience
Annie Dillard – Teaching a stone to talk
The silence is all there is. It is the alpha and the omega.
It is God's brooding over the face of the waters; it is the blended note of the ten thousand things, the whine of wings. You take a step in the right direction to pray to this silence, and even to address the prayer to "World."
Distinctions blur. Quit your tents. Pray without ceasing.
