! A Tribute To Ramana Maharshi - Poem by Michael Shepherd

Movement, beautiful movement
comes out of stillness;
dancers know this;

sound, beautiful sound,
comes out of silence;
musicians, singers, know this;

what then, of stillness and silence?

Be still for a while;
be silent for a while;
and you will know
all you need to know

and the question, who am I?
is answered
in stillness, in silence,
in the riches of yourself;
in the treasure of yourself.
