Advent — a coming, becoming

a waiting for.

Silence —

hearing the nothing

that is already here.

But can you hear Nothing? Is silence a thing in itself or simply the absence of sound?

If a vacuum contains nothing how can it exist? Unless the Nothing is Something?

Is darkness just the absence of light?

Is death just the absence of life?

Do we simply pass from Something to Nothing?

But then, where does new life come from? Where does the Coming of God come from?

Do we assume there is nothing else because we have not seen beyond our own light, life, Something?

Perhaps the Silence contains the Holy.

Perhaps the Silence is the Holy, the Holy that is already here.
