Lately, my ears are ringing from the sound of too many words, my eyes burn from reading too many words, my mind aches from thinking too many words, and my voice is tired from speaking too many words. In that spirit, today I offer you Rumi:
“Keep silence,” be mute; if you have not yet become the tongue of God, be an ear.
Rumi (from Mathnawi, II-3456)
