In a Nutshell

If only for one moment you abandon yourself there where no creatures live you will hear God speak.It is within you. If only you can be silent for one hour and forget all your desires and feelings, you will hear the unspeakable words of God.When you keep still and let go of the feelings and desires of your self, then eternal hearing, seeing, and speaking will be revealed and God will hear and see in you. Your own hearing, willing, and seeing is a hindrance, stopping you from seeing and hearing God.

When you are silent you are like God before He formed nature and creatures, including yours; you will then hear and see with what God saw and heard in you before your own willing, seeing, and hearing had begun.  –Jakob Boehme
