QUIETNESS



e0031336_7431438.jpg



The world know not of quiet. Restlessness

Is its abiding law. From there it goes

To pain and joylessness, and back again

To the unceasing restlessness on which

It stands, uncertain, insecure and frail,

Prey to illusions, victimized by guilt.

Yet quietness comes over it at last.

For when forgiveness comes,its certain gift

Is stillness, in which all the world is hushed;

A silence where the littleness of sin

Shrinks into nothingness before the Love

Forgiveness represents. And in His Name

Is everyone acknowledged as the same.



By Helen Schucman (The gifts of God)



世界は落ち着きのない法則に従い、静けさを知りません。

幻想と罪悪感の中で喜びのない痛みに向かい、

また不安定で壊れやすい落ち着かなさに戻る事を繰り返します。

しかし静けさはやがて訪れます。

赦しの贈り物は静寂です.そして世界は静まります。

それは小さな罪の幻想が愛の赦しの前で消える場所の静けさです。

そして神の名の下にすべての人の同一性が認識されます。
