Echart Tolle - from Stillness Speaks
Whenever death occurs, whenever a life form dissolves, God, the formless and unmanifested, shines through the opening left by the dissolving form. That is why the most sacred thing in life is death. That is why the peace of God can come to you through the contemplation and acceptance of death.
Ursula Le Guin
Only in silence the word,
only in dark the light,
only in dying life.
