'Be a soul of silence that remains like a lyre under the mysterious touch of the Holy Spirit so that He may draw from it divine harmonies' (Elizabeth of the Trinity)
There is a profound simplicity in the teachings of Elizabeth , alongside a gentle call for us to open ourselves to the creative and joyous dimension of God's Love.
Silence is the means by which we unlock our relationship with God , an interior commitment to the springs of harmony and unity that God so wishes us to discover and to serenely dwell within.
The challenge is hard, for our world suggests there are comparable truths in power, ambition, wealth, possessions, emotional highs, ego. Yet, all this is mere greater noise in an already noisy realm.
Elizabeth takes hold of our spiritual state and gives us those simple words of wisdom and clear direction around how we might shape a spiritual affinity with the transforming and the ever enduring and encouraging Spirit of God. Be a soul of silence, in trust and confidence ... let oneself embrace divine harmony!! For one might just become accustomed to it:
'...nothing is commonplace, we do not live in these things, we go beyond them'
