the sounds of silence.

I am reading another great work by Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now.
Tolle says, “Every sound is born out of silence, dies back into silence, and during its life span is surrounded by silence. Silence enables the sound to be. It is an intrinsic but unmanifested part of every sound, every musical note, every song, every word. The Unmanifested is present in this world as silence. This is why it has been said that nothing in this world is so like God as silence. All you have to do is pay attention to it.
…You cannot pay attention to silence without simultaneously becoming still within. Silence without, stillness within. You have entered the unmanifested.”
“Just as no sound can exist without silence, nothing can exist without no-thing, without the empty space that enables it to be. Every physical object or body has come out of nothing, is surrounded by nothing, and will eventually return to nothing.”

As paranormal investigators, we live in the world of no-thing. Silence is a river we navigate. We long for something to come out of no-thing. We listen intently for sound to manifest out of the unmanifested silence.
We seek the cyclical nature of spirit, of soul. The human form that comes out of nothing, is surrounded by nothing, and eventually returns to nothing again manifests itself. The soul reconnects with us by the way of sound. The form that was born, died, and is born again. We are navigators on the river of no-thing. Of silence.
