Tell No One What You Have Seen

“Tell no one what you have seen.”

In the face of Mystery - keep silent.

                                                           Why?

Because your words will domesticate the wildness of God. 
Your memory will diminish the majesty of the Holy One.
Your tiny imagination will limit the infinitely outrageous Glory.

 

It is impossible to speak the unspeakable.
At least not with words.

 

When you go down into the valley of your life,
go and speak of what you have seen and what your heart has learned
not in words, but

in deeds, 
relationships, 
love, 
action.

No more.
No less.

That is the Glory of God transfiguring us all.

(Mark 9)
