Mama Maggie Gobran Quotes

One Quote by: Mama Maggie Gobran of Stephen's Children, Cairo, Egypt Coptic Orthodox Christian.

The third step and the last is the toughest of the cords, to have a very pure heart and to get to know the almighty, the most high. So, I started to devote one day per week and then to three days per month and then one week every couple of months. I found that in a complete silence and then I found that the silence is the secret, it's the first step to showing me the treasures. To be in silence is to be fully inside your own self. It is not easy, but there we discover the taste of eternity, the kingdom is within you. In the third century St. Anthony the Great heard the tough cord to sense everything to the desert to live in complete silence. Later one hundred thousand young people followed him to the desert. He became the founder of all monastic life all over the history. I learned there are secrets in silence. If you have a pen please write what I have learnt: Silence your body to listen to your words; Silence your tongue to listen to your thoughts; Silence your thoughts to listen to your heart beating; Silence your heart to listen to your spirit; and silence your spirit, you listen to his spirit. You know in silence: you leave many and be with the one.
