Even when we keep quiet

16 May 2021

We can enclose the whole world, if we enclose the atmosphere of paradise within us. Because, if we lose the kingdom of heaven, we neither save ourselves nor anyone else. Those who have the kingdom of God within them will imperceptibly transmit it to others. People will be attracted by the peace and warmth within us, they’ll want to be with us, and the atmosphere of heaven will gradually pass to them, too. It’s almost not necessary to talk to people about it. The atmosphere of paradise will radiate from us, even when we’re silent or when we’re talking about everyday matters. It’ll radiate from us even when we have no sense that it’s doing so.
