Without Talking

Those who live continually in love,

seldom talk about it.

It exists outside your

words,

thoughts,

feeling…

and senses.

Yet fills up all that you are.

Too much talking hinders

your ability to hear it.

Spend a whole day with your beloved

without talking.

Do not read, listen to radio or watch television.

Just be with each other and notice how you feel,

even when it seems strange,

Discover who you are

without all of these things.

Express your essence to each other wordlessly.

~ from “The Couples Tao Te Ching”
