    That reminded me of this from Rumi:

    In Silence

    A guide has entered this life

    in silence.
    His message is only heard
    in silence.

    Take a sip of his precious wine
    And lose yourself.
    Don’t insult the greatness of his love,
    For he helps all those who suffer,
    in silence.

    Polish the mirror between the breaths.
    Go with him, beyond words.
    He knows your every deed.
    He is the one
    who moves the wheel of heaven,
    in silence.

    Every thought is buried in your heart;
    He will reveal them one by one,
    in silence.

    Turn each of your thoughts into a bird
    And let them fly to the other world.
    One is an owl, one is a falcon, one is a crow.
    Each one is different from the others
    But they are all the same
    in silence.

    To see the Moon that cannot be seen
    Turn your eyes inward
    and look at yourself,
    in silence.

    In this world and the next,
    Don’t talk about this and that;
    Let him show you everything,
    shining as one . . . in silence.
