“The deepest level of communication

is not communication,

but communion.

It is wordless.

It is beyond words.

It is beyond speech.

It is beyond concept.

Not that we discover a new unity, but we discover an old unity.

My dear brothers and sisters, we are already one.

But we imagine we are not.

And what we have to recover is our original unity.

What we have to be, is what we are.”

Thomas Merton
