In the midst of silencethere was spoken within mea secret word.But where is the silence,and where is the placewherethe word is spoken?It is inthe purest thingthat the soul is capable of,in the noblest part,the ground.Indeed, in the veryessence of the soul,which is thesoul's most secret part.
Which rings of Merton's words on nothingness:
At the center of our being is a point of nothingness, which is untouched by sin and by illusion, a point of pure truth, a point, a spark, which belongs entirely to God.It's like a pure diamond, blazing with the invisible light of heaven. It is in everybody!I have no program to seize this. It is only given. But the Gate of Heaven is everywhere!
There is nothing more to say.
